Virtual meetings anyone?

Any social or anti-social get togethers, track days, shows, stag nights etc. that may be of interest to members. The occational blast down the road, or trip down to the local.

A couple of weeks ago in a virtual meeting there was a mention that the rear wheel bearings can be removed, dismantled for cleaning and repacked.

Can someone please tell me how the bearing components are taken apart and reassembled.

Many thanks,

G

I'll dig out an old one over the weekend and remind myself and let you know.

Moderators - perhaps you could move this to a more appropriate section - no one will ever look here for wheel bearing info in the future!! :D

Once you have pressed the bearing from the hub carrier you will see a circular clip between the inner races. It doesn't fit around the entire circumference of the races. Carefully mount the bearing in a soft-jawed vice and gently tap on one inner race edge between the ends of the clip - use something like a very blunt cold chisel (completely grind off the cutting edge). The race will come out without much difficulty. The other inner race can then be lifted from the outer bearing race. The clip's only purpose is to keep the two halves of the bearing together while in it's original packaging.

Here is a photo of one I have just dismantled - you can see what a sorry state it's in:
