How to disassemble crank bearing on Schwinn Mesa Mountain Bike

I need to know how to disassemble the crank bearing on my Schwinn Mesa Mountain Bike. I think it is damaged, the assembly is loose and makes a clunk/sort of grind noise. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

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.

If these are replaceable than you would you have to look it up by the brand of shocks.

Ex. Rockshocks Duke 1995. The replacement parts are specific to the make/ model and year. All the shock companies have a customer service messaging service so they can you give you advice on your particular shock.

I would like to service my Schwinn Mesa, Is there a manual? If not what needs to be done for a general service?


Check, clean, and lube all the brake and shifter cables. Check and possibly replace brake pads. Check for any play in the headset ( this is the tube that carries the bearings for the handlebars and front fork ). Clean and lube the chain, gears, and derailers. After all of that just check the torque on all the hardware and make sure nothing is coming loose.

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.

The crank arm is stripped on the left side of the bike


Yes, the crank-arm could be replaced.
1.You would need to remove the flat nut holding the crank to the frame. And then take out the bearing.
2. A special open-ended wrench is required to remove this nut. Please visit your local bicycle shop for a new crank-arm, and the required tools, also.
3. Put in new crank-arm and its bearing.
4. Grease the bearing.
5. Tighten nut.
6. Give it a test ride.
