Everyone i have replaced haven't had any needles left in them. Like was stated take a torch and cut the center out. Easy and quick.
Since i have mad skills to remove the spindle i used a block a wood and big hammer and work my way around the spindle to knock it loose. Before reassembly clean the rust off the lip and coat with antiseize. Also buy a spindle bearing kit. I haven't seen one yet that the spidnle bearings weren't trashed.
