    Wellgo Look-style pedal overhaul

    I just got a pair of Wellgo Look-style pedals in a trade, and one of them is a bit sticky. I'd like to replace the bearings and the grease, but I can't quite figure out how to take them apart.

    It would appear that I need to loosen the splined plastic "locking sleeve" from the body of the pedal itself, as per this photo:



    Do I definitely need to get a proprietary tool to loosen that? What comes after that step?

    Thanks,
    R

    The pleasure is momentary, the position ridiculous, and the expense damnable.

    Yes, you need the tool unless you don't care about completely destroying the plastic sleeve. The tool is cheap so you might as well. Assuming they are designed like my Shimano SPD-SL pedals which use the same plastic sleeve, once you unscrew that, the whole pedal spindle and bearings will come out as an assembly. On the outside end, there will be an 8mm nut that you remove to get at the bearings. There is no adjustment though. The nut just gets tightened down until it stops on a lip on the spindle.

    Hmmm...can the Shimano axle removal tool be used on Look pedals?

    Looks like it should fit.

    My pedals came with the tool.
    This is Africa, 1943. War spits out its violence overhead and the sandy graveyard swallows it up. Her name is King Nine, B-25, medium bomber, Twelfth Air Force. On a hot, still morning she took off from Tunisia to bomb the southern tip of Italy. An errant piece of flak tore a hole in a wing tank and, like a wounded bird, this is where she landed, not to return on this day, or any other day.
