SOURCE: How to disassemble crank bearing on Schwinn Mesa Mountain Bike

You wil need a couple of special tools, or be fairly creative with the tools you have.

  1. remove the dustcovers in the crank arms at the crank axle
  2. loosen the crank retaining nut/bolt.
  3. thread in a chank puller and pull the crank arms.
  4. remove the lock ring on the adjustable side of the crank axle (Requires lock ring wrench)
  5. remove adjustable bearing cup.
  6. remove axle and bearings
  7. replace or repair as needed.
Once you have it opened up ou can determine if you need new bearings or crank axle.
to assemble, reverse above procedure, insuring bearing play is minimalized.

Hope this helps.

SOURCE: My pedals are squeaking while pedaling on my


i cannot see any problems with wd40 on any bike and have used it myself for many years.
just wipe away any excess, and do not spray it on the pedal tops (where your shoes go) as they may get slippery.

light oil (3in1 or simillar) is also excellent on bikes instead of wd40. same advice as above.

i find wd40 works faster, especially on squeaks, but oil works for longer.
i usually use wd40 first to cure the imediate noise, and then use a few drops of the oil to keep it quiet for longer.

hope this helps

How do I know what model Schwinn bike I have?

The model is written on the frame or on the chainguard. If the frame has been repainted the model doesn't matter much, as any value has been severely reduced, especially if it was not a professional paint job.

I have a schwinn serial number dp509984. I would like to known what year make and model it is as well as a price range if at all poossible. Thanks for ur help

It would help if you had at least provided the type of bike (old coaster brake, 3 speed, 10 speed, etc.) The make is Schwinn, the model is written right on the bike frame or chainguard. If the bike is repainted so that the model is not visible it's not worth much. As far as year, just Google "Schwinn serial number" (and note info about date codes) and see my tip for more info: How to determine the year value etc of your bicycle

Schwinn cruiser frame serial number U22Y48168 under crank, forward facing drop out. the tubes run on outside of seat post, not welded into it on both sides. what can you tell me about this frame?

The serial number alone is not always helpful, including in this case. You need to specify what the model is (written on frame or chainguard). If the bike has been repainted it does not matter much how old it is, most of the value is gone. Look for an additional number on the head tube - may have a date code. Google "Schwinn serial number" for more info or check my tip:

The left pedal to my Schwinn Windwood women's cruiser will NOT go in. I have verified that it is the left pedal and had no issues getting the right pedal in. What can I do?

Answered in your previous post, The left pedal is opposite threading. You screw the pedal in the same direction as the right side - toward the front of the bike.

Facing right side crank - Right pedal screws in normal, toward the front of the bike.

Facing left side crank - Left pedal screws in counterclockwise, toward the front of the bike.

Bad crank bearings can move crank arms small amount.

That would depend on the style of bearings (loose ball or caged balls vs sealed bearings) and possible bottom bracket damage.

Either way, a Bike Shop mechanic would probably need to assess it for you. Special tools are usually involved.
