SOURCE: How to disassemble crank bearing on Schwinn Mesa Mountain Bike

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.

This isn't Bike Repair 101-level stuff. Take it to a reputable bike shop and have them teach you while they do it. If they're cartridge bearings it's fairly simple. Next time, you can handle it. Be advised, crankset removal tools are specialized and expensive for the casual bike owner who would use them only once every few years..

Replace beko 8227 drum bearings

Remove bearing(s) from drum

Using a brass drift punch find the two slots behind the bearing race,
and drive the race out using the brass drift. If you must use a steel drift , wear eye protection as the race may shatter like glass.

Install new race, purchased for an auto parts dealer or a bearing dealer, if one is available to you, using the brass drift punch, or a piece of wood and a hammer . Do not allow the hammer to touch the new race.

Pack the new bearing(s) with grease. Reassemble drum onto machine.

Hard to remove tire lug nuts made easy

Did you ever have to remove a tire on your car or someone elses and the wheel lugs were too tight?
Ok I have a "proven simple solution".
Keep available a deep socket 1/2" drive impact wrench quality for both 3/4" lug nuts and 13/16" lug nuts and a small 2-4 lb. hammer.
Put the socket on the tight lug, strike it with the hammer dead on, remove it with your lug wrench, if that doesnt work, apply WD 40, use a 1/2 breaker bar and slide a 2 foot pipe over the handle of the breaker bar, lean your body weight on the breaker bar/pipe and walla it will come off.

How do I change front drivers wheel bearing on mitsibishi colt equipe 2005

Take off the brake assemble meaning remove the roater caliper clean any dirt off the control arm and axel mount take down the upper and lower ball joints then pry them down to allow the axel carrier to pivot down then there should be three bolts behind the bearing remove those and rent a barring puller from autozone then apply the puller to the barings and they should come out this May require a press installer or as in removing the barring you might have to use some wd-40 to spray on the back side of the barring and some hits with a sludge hammer to break it loose if the puller isn't allowed to force the barring out simply and to re assemble it is just the opposite also grease the axel shaft and make sure the surface is clean before installation and use anti seize on all screws and ect this shall help you out

That is often a tough one. The bearing is pressed on the shaft and should slide with it in the housing, but the bearing becomes corroded in there and won't shift.

Make sure the small retaining bolt is removed from the housing first. At the end of that is a plastic plug which presses on the bearing, and it is useful to keep track of this. Also remove the large snap ring securing the shaft in the trans case. See here p24 and p39

First spray generously the joint line between bearing and housing with Penetrol or similar, both sides, and let it soak for 24 hr.

Obtain a piece of copper or brass to hammer on, which will prevent damage to the shaft. A short round piece is ideal. On the inboard side of the bearing housing you will see a convenient step on the driveshaft, which is where you place the copper piece and hammer on it. Don't hammer on the bearing itself unless you plan to replace it.

It also helps to take a powerful hair drier or hot air paint strip gun, and heat up the bearing housing just before you do all this. I have even known persons to apply a gas flame to the housing, but I would be worried about damage to the bearing.

It takes a lot of tapping with a heavy hammer, but this should shift it out. Apply a film of moly grease to the outside of the bearing, when re-assembling it to the housing.

How to change left front differential seal

When working on your differential you will need a wide variety of tools. Using the correct tools saves time and helps prevent parts from being damaged. Here is a list of some of the tools that you may need:
  • Dial indicator
  • Gear marking compound and a clean brush
  • Calipers or a micrometer
  • Bearing pullers
  • Bearing press
  • Three foot long breaker bar or strong impact gun
  • Pinion nut socket
  • Ring gear bolt socket
  • Carrier cap bolt socket
  • Six point cross pin bolt wrench
  • Brake line wrench
  • Pry bars for removing the carrier case
  • 24 oz ball pein hammer
  • 48 oz sledge hammer
  • 48 oz plastic dead blow hammer
  • Assorted brass punches
  • Punch for marking carrier caps
  • Oil drain pan
  • Foot pounds torque wrench
  • Inch pounds torque wrench

Disassembly Make sure that you have all the parts and tools you will need. The extent of disassembly depends on the job being done and the inspection findings. Lift the vehicle using an appropriate lift or a jack and safe jack stands. Always make certain that the vehicle is safely supported before working underneath. Unbolt the driveshaft from the yoke. Remove the differential cover or unbolt the third member. Let the oil drain into a suitable container. Please recycle your waste oil. Remove c-clip axles by removing the differential cross pin bolt and cross pin shaft, pushing the axles in and pulling the c-clips. Full float axles are unbolted at the hubs. Punch both carrier caps with identification marks so that you will be able to re-install them on the same side and in the same direction. Most carriers can be pried out of the housing with a pry bar. Further disassembly depends on the job being done. If you're changing the ring and pinion or the pinion bearings, remove the pinion nut with an air gun while holding the yoke, or use a long breaker bar and brace the yoke (bolt it to a long board) so that it can't move. Knock the pinion gear out to the rear with a brass punch, taking care not to damage the threads. Keep track of the location and thickness of all of the original shims. Pinion bearings must be pressed off. Carrier bearings can be pulled using a bearing puller. Internal parts (inside the carrier) can be removed as necessary.


Inspect all bearings and races for pitting or uneven wear. The inner carrier bearing races should not spin on the carrier journals. The carrier races should have a snug fit in the housing. Inspect the carrier race bores for grooves from spinning races. The side gear bores inside the carrier should not have any abnormal wear. All gear teeth (including the spider gears) should be smooth but not excessively shiny. Inspect all gear teeth for pitting, chips, breaks, and for signs of uneven wear and overheating. Inspect positraction clutches for scoring and wear. Inspect the axles for pitted, grooved, or dull and rough bearing surfaces. Check for worn axle splines. All questionable parts should be replace

Differential Adjustments
The four essential differential adjustments are pinion depth, pinion bearing preload, backlash and carrier bearing preload. The tables at the back can be used to write down shim combinations and results.

How to change front wheel bearings on 2000 olds intrigue I have a bad left front wheel bearing. Also I have changed the rear ones. Should I go ahead and change the other side?

Yes you can try replace it

What you need to do is go to an auto parts store such as AutoZone. Then buy the Wheel Bearing/Hub Assembly-Front it runs around $150. Once you have the part you need to take off the Caliper and rotor.
Then you need a 36 mm socket to take off the cv nut. You will need a breaker bar if you don't have a tourque wrench, but remove the nut. Then take a hammer and punch, and place the punch on the cv axle and try to knock it through the hub, pushing the cv axle into the boot a little.
Do not pull the hub off before loosening it from the cv axle, that could cause you to have to replace the axle boot. Once you got the cv axle free take the 3 bolts off the back of the hub. If you can't get to the 3 bolts behind the hub you can take the 2 bolts out of the top of the strut and that will give you more room. I was able to keep the strut bolts in.
Once the bolts are out it may be hard to remove the hub. I had to use a lot of WD 40 and a brass hammer to get it off. However, most auto parts stores will rent you a tool that will help you take it off, the same tool will also help with getting the hub free from the cv axle if the hammer and punch did not work. Once removed put the new one on. Makes sure you put some lithium grease on everything before installation.

Stuck bearing

You can punch it out but it is not an easy task and the other way is to cut it out with a torch, I do it al the time when the race seizes up in the drum or spindle or rotor assembly if it's a rotor you will see on the back side two half moons where you can tap it out with a hammer and a half inch rod, you have to hammer it equally and use wd 40 to help it slide out easier. Then sand it before replacing the race. One other thought if it turned the metal blue then you need to replace the assembly as it will lose temper and can cause brake or bearing failure or a failure of the axle.
