... but I can already see that you have four more screws to take off … visible in that top picture.

You need a 3-arm puller. But really you need to read this from Kenteroo. It will show you just how to pull the caps to access the motor and motor bearing. Read the whole thing. Very good pictorial documentation.

If you don’t have experience with motors I would go to a shop. One slip of a screw driver could reck the hole thing. Attempting disassembly without the correct tools can cause damage too.
