Unfortunately they appear not to just push on.  They are a small ball and socket joint.  Only someone who has managed to fit them will be able to answer my question

How did you get yours out? or was it supplied with them removed.

Too difficult to explain but a correctly fitted drive shaft and worm gear housing holds the bogie in place.  The ball and socket are purely there to provide a pivot for the bogie.   I was coming at the problem from a wrong assumption.
