IMS question!!

I am a young amature mechanic, i own a 2000 porsche boxster 2.7. I used the set screw method (i know, i know) to get to the point where i have my dual row ims bearing exposed with the center bolt knocked out.

We have attempted removing the ims to absolutely no success, having tried everything and begining to worry about damaging other things, would pulling the center bolt back through the bearing and putting the flange back on be a bad idea? I was going to pull it being this far but im realising now i shouldve never touched it after noticing it was the dual row.

Im thinking as long as we put some oil that was lost when removing the flange back in and also knowing nothing has been changed or damaged to the bearing it SHOULD be ok. on the other hand i know at this point there is a chance all ive done is increase the odds of a possible future failure.
