    Sram XO rear cassette problem

    So I am new to all this. Just finished taking off and cleaning the rear cassette Sram X9 which was mated to a Syncros hyb. No problem. Used the chain whip and Park tool. Nice and clean and back together.

    Now I tried the same on my hardtail. It is Sram XO mated toa Sunringle hub.

    I used the tool and chain whip to take out center nut. Cassette would not budge so i used hex to remove the inner nut now cassette is claen but cannot get it back onto axle of the hub.

    There are 3 pawls sticking out and I cannot figure out how to depress all three at once to allow for the unit to slip back into the rest of the mechanism.

    First picture shows the pawls and second shows where they go. I tried to depress with thin screwdrivers but only have 2 hands. Special tool?

    Fashion a noose out of dental floss?

    Try a piece of string tied around the pawls to to depress them. They should then slip in and you can then cut or untie the string.

    Yup. Fishing line did the trick. Thanks. I was starting to panic.

    Just curious is there a special tool?
