    XTR M9120 pedal seals backing out

    I've seen this issue mentioned here and there on the internet -- the inboard seals will back out and get grimy and dirty. I've tried wiping them and pushing them back in. I've also tried greasing them up and pushing them in. Still they work out though less than before. Is there a fix? Maybe a rebuild kit with a new seal? I've searched and can't find any shimano updates.

    I had mine warrantied by Shimano and 20 minutes into my first ride I had the same problem. Not sure if it fixed yet for the newest pedals.

    Yes, I noticed it happening the first week of riding them.

    ^^^ I would think it's little more than over lubricated on assembly. Common when I lube the Shimano SPD's, to inject a bit too much grease and it forces out when assembling the pedal on the spindle. It has to pass through and past the seal.

    I just went with a ghetto solution


    I used a couple of tiny zip ties tightly attached to the axle, almost rubbing the nut that attaches the pedal body to the axle... since then... the seal never back out again...

    Simple and effective and definitely not ideal 😂
