Yolo suggest using one shield on the open ball side of each bearing. You may use a shield on both sides but this makes it more difficult to oil/service. However, two shields locks in the oil and keeps out debris more effectively.
Removing Rubber Shields:
Using a thumbtack or something similar, use the pointed end of the tack (be careful, very sharp) to enter the inside portion of the shield. Gently pry up, moving your pin around the inner ring of the bearing until the shield releases. Do not force the bearing up (Shields may bend with force).
Replacing Rubber Shields:
Set a bearing on a hard flat surface, place the new or original shield flat on the bearings with the center of the shield lined up with the center of the bearing, then press firmly on the side and work your fingers around the bearing. You may hear or feel a small click, as well the shield will lay flat. if there are any high spots then press again in that area. If you spin the bearing and you feel a high spot or the shield feels out of round then the shield is not seated 100%. If the bearing turns smoothly then you are all set.
