I have a Trek 3700. I tried to take the chain guard off the wheel and took off the quick disconnect bar.
Of course, I can't remember which way they went back on - I did it in this order -
Quick connect handle - Spring - Nut (which attachs to the axle) - Circle Bit (inside rubber/plastic case) then wheel bearing
On the otherside - End nut - Spring and axle.
I followed the manual I downloaded - I tightened the wheel finger tight and then pulled the handle down.
The wheel spins very easy without being tightened, but if its only fingure tight the wheel doesn't spin very well....
Can you help me please.... I shouldn't have pulled the wheel apart, or the DVD, Fridge, TV etc...
The quick release parts are nut, spring ,spring ,lever. Any chance that you tightened the axle nuts? The way to use a quick release is to havw the lever half way open ,tighten the nut finger snug ,close lever.Go the Park Tools, or Sheldon Brown for more info.
Yeah, I tightened the axle nuts... I think I broke the bearings. I opened them and the balls fell out, so I put them back in and replaced the axle. I can't open the nut on the lever side anymore... its on too tight. The nut on the otherside opens though.
I'm an idiot...
