I have a PF BB30 bottom bracket, running Campagnolo cups.

Since I run EPS, I have the spindle protector installed inside between the 2 cups to protect the wires from the rotating spindle.

I am about to fit the new V2 internal battery and need to remove the cups in order to gain access to the wires to remove the external battery and install the internal battery.

Ordinarily, without the spindle protector fitted, you would just pop the cups out using a splayed headset cup removal tool. However, because of the sleeve, the tool will not splay out to engage the cups.

Any ideas on how to remove the cups by any other method?

A puller won't work unfortunately. Same problem as the headset tool.

Namely that the protective spindle sleeve is narrower internally than the cup and there is nothing for the puller to get purchase on.

I might have to destroy the sleeve somehow. Then either method will work. I was trying to avoid that though.
