You will need a crank puller which is a specialized tool that does not justify purchase unless you plan on using it a lot. That means a trip to the bike shop which is a good idea anyways as they will have to match up the crank arm for you as they come in sets.You will also need a new set of pedals and there are lots to choose from.

There are no threads on the crank arm to screw a pedal on. What do you do now?


1. replace the crank.
2. Purchase a Heli-Coil or other brand at an auto store. It looks like a tube with threads on both sides that will screw in to the stripped hole and there by install new threads. Bring the pedal to the auto store to make sure it will thread in to the "female" threads on the Heli-coil.

The problem is the pedal is steel and the crank arm is soft aluminum. Also, people damage them because one pedal is normal thread and the other is reverse thread meaning you turn clockwise to loosen.

Pedal stripped


You will need to have that crank arm replaced. They do make repair threads, but the price to install is just as much as replacing the crank arm. Your local bike shop can provide the correct parts.

Stripped bicycle pedal


Better replace the pedal and most probably the crank arm as well. Sometimes a new pedal can cut the threads true again on the crank arm but the crank arm may need replacement too, depending on the damage. Remember to fit the correct side pedal. The pedal threads differ between left and right and pedals are usually marked "L" or "R".

1

Prepare to oil by filling a grease gun with lithium grease. Check your owner's manual for the exact type of grease for your unit.

2

Locate where it is you need to lubricate. Focus on the bearings, free-moving joints and attachments with moving parts such as handle bars, wheels, pedals arms and guide rails. Go to each location one by one when greasing.

3

Unfasten the bolts or screws that hold the joint or attachment that you wish to lubricate.

4

Grease each bolt and screw liberally. Tighten each bolt and screw back into its place when finished.

5

Wipe away any excess grease
Loose Pedals

1

Kneel next to the left side of the elliptical's base. Use the Phillips screwdriver to tighten the two screws located in the center of the left pedal.

2

Use the Allen wrench to remove the bolt securing the left pedal arm to the pedal leg and body arm. Use the Phillips screwdriver to remove the screw securing the rear end of the pedal leg to the crank arm.

3

Pull the end of the pedal leg free of the crank arm. Wipe the crank arm clean, then apply a fresh coating of machine grease or silicone lubricant. Replace the end of the pedal leg back onto the crank arm and use the previously removed screw to secure it back into place.

4

Join the front end of the left pedal arm to the ends of the pedal leg and body arm. Use the previously removed bolt to connect the pieces together.

5

Move to the right side of the elliptical and repeat the above steps on the right pedal arm

My right pedal is stripped. how can you repair/replace the part the pedal screws into?


If it's stripped the crank arm will need to be replaced. It's probably more expensive to fashion a repair with helicoils and taps, even if you COULD find a left-handed one for the left side.

Get on your favorite search engine and look for "(your brand of crank) (size)" or just take it to a Bike Shop and let them deal with it. You would need special tools for crank removal anyway.
