Shielded bearing packs can be cleaned and re-lubed without any dis-assembly.

While Sealed bearing packs have to be dis-assembled.

So why are you wanting to dis-assemble your bearing packs?

look around the inner race. There is a small wire C. Use a needle to pop it up and out. You can then gently lift the shield. If you are very careful, you can do it and get it back together. It's an ok method to grease a greased bearing. If you make a mistake, you will have dozens of tiny balls on the floor, also if you don't get the clip in just right, it can pop loose inside the reel and make a big mess. If you are just curious and want to try it, then why not. But you might need to buy some new bearings until you get the hang of it. It's best to clean them without taking them apart and then use one drop of oil or use a small bearing greaser to grease them.

Not all the bearings in the S have removable shields. At least in the earlier models.

That may be, I have not seen them all. But if it has the wire ring, it can be taken apart. If not, then you can't
