    Crank Bros Quattro pedals - can't be serviced?

    Anybody have these pedals and can tell me how to disassemble them for servicing/bearing replacement. I have the Candy pedals on 2 of my bikes, and have been able to replace the bearings on those with no problem using the little rebuild kit they have available. But with these Quattros, I can't even figure out how to get into them. There are small allen-head bolts that pass through the composite body, and I've tried to unscrew those, but no luck. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

    you need a 3 mm Allen key for the bolts and a flat head screwdriver . there a flat head screw you are missing somewhere . once you remove it then they come apart very easy . good luck

    Where is the magic flat head screw? I saw the same thing on the Crank Bros site (but of course, no directions or diagrams about what to do), but I don't see a flat-head screw anywhere.

    No - there just isn't one. I'm wondering if I have a first generation of these pedals and they eventually changed the design. I'm going to try to get to a shop and get a look at a pair of newer ones to see if there is a flathead screw that doesn't appear on mine.

    So, I'm gathering (and no sarcasm intended - truly) that you haven't taken a pair of these apart yourself, and your earlier comment that they come apart quite easily wasn't based on personal experience. If I'm wrong about that, then please tell me how you were able to get them apart.

    the screw should be behind the front clover. when you remove the screw the seal bearings are there . replace them then put everything together . I'm not bother by your sarcasm , i was just trying to help out , sorry that not the case .
