Description: Is there a proper way to remove and install the axle sleeve from the backing plate

I am in the process of replacing the rear brake backing plate on my 60 pan. Before I start resorting to a hammer is there a proper way to remove and install the axle sleeve from the backing plate?

Thanks Skip
I'll soak it with WD-40 and see what happens
right how it is solid as a rock

Update - some WD40 overnight and a press and it came out
