Good morning, I am hoping that I can find someone that can help me with a step-by-step on how to rebuild the rear axle. This past weekend, while changing the rear tire I saw that the axle was very tight and that I could see the ball bearings inside of it. Figuring something was wrong, I tinkered with it...but after a while it seemed that the bearings/etc were just too far gone to fix. Unfortunately, I don't know the simple stuff. For example, I don't even know what the part is called and therefore can't order a rebuild kit. If anyone could help, I'd be grateful.
My questions are:
- does anyone have step-by-step repair/rebuild instructions?
- what part would I order? The axle set (bearings, etc) itself seems to be the problem.
- best question is probably...it is worth rebuilding or do I just buy a new wheel? Of course then I'd have to learn to change out the gear sprockets.
I apologize for being so clueless. Hope to hear from someone soon!
p.s. the photo attached isn't of the actual bike, but it is a photo of the SAME model that I found online. I thought it might be helpful to show what model bike it is.
