Rear wheel assembly of my bike is shaking side ways

Sounds like loose 'cones' in the rear wheel hub. The cones are cone-shaped nuts that the bearings run against, being held in place within the hub in the 'cup' of the hub. Tighten the cones until there is free rotation of the wheel with no lateral play. Hold the cone in place with the spanner whilst tightening the lock-nut and recheck the adjustment. If you lack the tools take it to your nearest independent local bike shop and they will surely be happy to help.

Rear axle was taken out of cruiser bike .have new axle how does it all go back together cones bearings pads nuts a diagram would be nice

Diagrams for hubs are specific to the brand and model. There are several book resources that explain in general how a hub system goes together, just about any bicycle repair manual you can find.

If your cruiser bike has a coaster brake it will increase the complexity.

There are a number of specific tools you need to do the job correctly including wrenches and cone wrenches as well as new lithium grease for the bearings. If you do not already own the proper tools this may be a case where it is simpler and cheaper to take the parts into your local bike shop and have them put it back to together, since it is already in pieces the cost should be minimal to reassemble assuming all your parts are good. Cones are not pitted, etc.

Removed brake assembly from the hub, not sure

Coaster brake? i do not think i could walk you through that; you need images. has a very helpful repair help section (find the link at the top-right of the home page) that is replete with repair, maintenance and adjustment information. It is loaded with images, too, to make it easier if the instructions are not as clear as you would like (but they are very easily understood, generally). Just select the area of the bike you are having trouble with and a list of topics will be brought up. Browse around and find all the information they have for your benefit.

i hope this helps

The rear wheel hub assembly on my bike fell out while I was taking it apart. I didn't get a chance to look at it, now I can't get it back together.

There is a book put out by Park Tool that has a great wealth of maintenance and repair technique and information. i believe the information is also available on their website and if you visit it, the link you will want to follow is at the top right hand of the page "Repair Help". Roll your cursor over the hub of the part of the bike you need diagrams for (if you want hub info, it is the front hub you have to click because the rear deals with freehub repair).

Hope this helps,

Chain and Wheels

thank you for using Fixya. the issue you are experiencing is pretty much your free wheel. If it is new, it may have been installed the other way around or the clip in the assembly that serves as a spring for the chainwheel to lock out has been worn out.

Best if you will be able to remove the rear wheel and then check the whole rear hub assembly starting with the freewheel and the axle.
