    servicing jackalope freehub

    since we've got good friends, me and the jackalope in the last winters, I try to give them a bit of love and care.
    couple of questions about it: It's a common 3pawls hub but the bearings are not so smooth any more but not directly reachable, see the pics
    Possible to demount without damage? or better to change the whole hub (around 100$!)?
    Is this a kind of lubricating ring, in the first pic ?
    And last thing: after cleaning the pawls, automotive gear oil for lubrication or just sram butter (what Sram writes for their freehubs)?

    Driver section;
    With the proper tool to remove the retaining ring, you can remove the bearings for cleaning and lubrication.
    It is actually serviceable.

    If the bearings are used up, you can order up replacements at a lower cost than replacing the driver assembly.

    Hub bearings;
    Have to remove the axle to remove the bearings it appears. One side will have provision to slide the axle out. LBS should have the bearing removal tool to get them out. Might consider replacement if they are rough and worn.

    Bearing numbers are on the seals so you can get the proper replacement part. They are standard catalog numbers.

    I wondered how to put out this retainer ring, without this special tool might be tricky, I let it be for now.
    Checked my 26" mulefut, exactly the same xd driver but without this retainer ring and just a end cap! might be even compatible.
    The wheel bearings are a much easier work , with a bearing puller 5 min job indeed
    About this part in my pic with a question mark ? some idea what it is?

    I think that part is just an aluminum spacer.

    Yep. Gives a little support to the freehub body. Different lengths depending on HG vs. XD.

    They have such a high attrition rate (theyre garbage) your best bet is to get the DT Swiss!
