I was correct about where the opening of the bearing was. Instead of have the rubber top over the bearing like most do from the tutorials and videos I looked over, this one had a plastic cover over it.
I used an X-Acto knife, flathead, and a hammer to pry it open. I was extremely cautious and careful while doing this and a better tool from a video I watched did recommend a thumb drill. Which of course I did not have at this time. I hope I helped everyone as well if they were curious have a good day!
