Question about Furniture

Open Question

I'm assembling a Brenton Merido Writing desk. The entire desk is assembled, but the main drawer will not set properly in the sliders. The sliders are the small ball bearing type. I push the drawer in about half way, then it catches on the small ball bearing piece and will not go any further. I'm afraid to force it for fear of breaking the bearings completely. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.

    Problem solved. Just took some GENTLE, gradual force and a little WD40. The drawer finally set into the ball bearing sliders. It opens and closes smoothly now.

SOURCE: Need wheel bearing replacement

unfortunately your bearing assembly is a sealed unit and you have to purchase it as a complete part. they do have a way to change out the bearing at a shop, however the labor cost involved would most certainly be alot more than a replacement it's self. I have come across this problem many times and it's not as easy to switch them out as you have been told. i hope this helps. (note) to repalce them on your vehicle if you don't do the work yourself have a small shop do it not a dealer shop. the cost will be alot less. the labor time should be no more than 2 hrs. that is roughly about no more than 120- 150 dollars for the labor . if the place you take it to quotes you way more than that take it somewhere else... good luck please rate this

The drawer was very hard to place in the slider runners, took 20 mins to get it in without it locking and getting stuck. Please note the small grayish tabs in side both slider runners, very hard to press theses tabs and see them but these tabs do release the drawer from being locked when you only have it half way in the slot it goes in.

How do you change the entire triple tree for 2007 suzuki sv-650s

You need to support the entire weight completely off the front end. If you have frame sliders these are useful points under which to place jack stands (on wooden blocks if necssary.)
Then you must remove the wheel and forks before removing the triples.
This is not a trivial procedure - a special tool is required to properly set the bearings when re-assembling. 
I would recommend a service manual to follow the process specifically.
