I just replaced mine. I figured it out from your comments, thanks for giving me a clue.
I removed the slave cylinder so I could get a good look at it. I turned the bearing counter clockwise until it stopped. Then I pulled and twisted CCW sharply. It popped off.
I know this is late for you but maybe it will help the next guy.
