QD Hub bearing removal
« on: 24.07. 2012 18:31 »
Hi all,

Can anyone advise how to remove the the hub/brake drum bearing on the QD hub? It seems I can only get a drift on the inner race and I am worried about seperating the bearing and having the outer race left in the housing. Is heat the way to go?

Many thanks

I'd give a bit of heat on the inside of the drum, no need to go berserk it should come relatively easily..don't think there's much other choice than to tap the inner race...should be ok if you hold the drift square and firm and don't hit the cage? Obviously the harder you(have to) hit it gives a greater chance of potential damage.   I assume you've removed the circlip?
 Good luck

Hi Dutch,

Thanks
I will try a bit of heat - circlip came out fine. I put it back together for the moment. Its got some play in it but not massive but does need changing.
