Either the wheel is not centered in the frame, It's the wrong diameter/width wheel, or the derailleur is crooked (or did you mean the chainwheels/sprockets?). Need clear picture or find in-person help - knowledgeable friend, bike co-op or bike shop.

Is there a way to safely dismantle the rear gear shifter?

Remove the rear wheel and see if the shifter (derailer) is able to move all the way up to first gear. If it is then you have a stretched cable. If not then a bent derailer. Most likely a stretched cable.

Since you didn't specify which derailleur needed adjusting, I have included links to adjusting both the front and rear derailleurs.

I have a Kawasaki kx20s 10 speed boys mountain bike that needs the rear brake cable replaced and both the front and rear derailer gear cables adjusted or possibly replaced. Is there a manual or diagram of...

1st The brakes: Once you have ran the cable through appropriate cable holders and to the brakes-you hold the brake calipers shut-remove excess slack from cable by pulling on it with pliers and back off a little before tightening the nut holding the cable(amount you have to back off tension depends on how strait your wheel is).
The Front Derailer doesn't usually have adjustment so you put the gear lever in top gear-loosen the nut holding the cable-push the derailer into the right position-remove slack from cable with pliers then tighten the nut.
The Rear Derailer: will need to be done the same way if your running a new cable..*But there is a screw on the derailer near the junction of the 2 parts that adjusts the position of the derailer- so you can do minor adjustments-**NOTE-there are 2 screws- 1 changes the position in or out and the other changes the angle**

How do i stop chain going over first gear

There are two screws on the rear derailer that are used to limit the travel of the derailer. (That is, they limit how far the derailer moves in an out.) Have someone move the lever while you watch the derailer move back and forth. You can usually see which screws these are. If you can't tell, them put the derailer in a middle gear, turn one of the screws to the right about a quarter turn and try it out. If it no longer goes into high gear, that was the wrong screw. Turn it back and try the other one. By the way, do your testing by just holding the wheel off of the ground and turning the pedals by hand. This is best done with two people. Good luck.

Hufyy 26" Tundra 18 speed bike....GEars are clicking

Sounds like the rear derailer needs adjustment. Are you handy with tools? There should be a micro adjuster on the cable for the rear derailer. It might be located at the shifter on the handle bars, or at the rear derailur. Follow the cable from shifter to derailer, Look for an adjusting nut, when you find it, turn it counter clockwise to remove slack from the line. Go one turn at a time, ride it and shift through the gears. Repeat until the noise stops or you run out of adjustment. If that doesn't fix it, you need to srew the adjuster all the way back in, shift it to the highest gear, loosen the bolt the holds the cable on the derailer and pull the cable tight and tighten the bolt back down. If you are unsure about doing this, go to your local bike shop and have them fix it AND show you how to do it.

I have a 2007 Specialized s works roubaix. I have a ''clicking sound under load only that ''seems'' to be coming from the crank because it clicks at every rotation of the crank. the bike has about 3500...

I can tell you by my own experience that the click at every rotation is because the bearings on the BB, I had the same in my bicycle and after install a new crankset and BB it went away. I installed a Shimano Deore Hollowtech II and it works nicely and no noise.

Forget new guide wheels. A new rear derailer is the real fix. You will need to order a new one by the number of gears on the rear gear cluster. How the derailer is mounted, Which way it moves when by the spring direction etc... By the way, get a higher quality one than the one you have got. If you go megawheel on the lower guide wheel; which I recommend, you might need a couple more segments in your chain. Yes, you need a new chain. If you wore out a part on you derailer, your chain is getting old. I recently bought a new rear derailure for my wife's bike for 29 bucks at a much better quality than the old one. It does not have problems of getting between gears, clicking etc... like the old one did new.
