I'd be surprised if you couldn't get the bearings out. You might even
be able to put it back together when you're done ;-)

I seem to recall, from taking apart very dead big DEC disk drives, that
the spindle ran in fairly boring ball races. If you get them out, you
can check for wear and play. There will be a code stamped on them that
you can use to order a replacement. Take it to your friendly
neighbourhood motor factor or specialist bearing stockist.
