Last time that happened to me, I damaged them and ordered new ones. Then before I put them in, apply one drop of oil, and next time they'll come out easy.

I learned the hard way.

collets
Is the hub off the engine? If it is you could take off the fan and heat it up that might work.

remove the nut and tap the fan hub lightly with a hammer and the top collet will come loose.

Never loose airspeed, altitude and ideas all at the same time.
