Tips for removal w/out paying somebody at the stealership, or a machine shop to remove it? I've tried tapping with a flat blade driver and using a race removal tool, but no luckie.

Before doing any damage I'd try warming up the entire assembly pretty hot. Something like a propane torch would do. Then when it's all good and warm rub the offending race with ice. It might just fall out.
