    Mavic Ellipse Axle removal

    I'm stuck here...

    I'm trying to get the axle out of a Mavic Ellipse wheel. The track nut and spacer comes off the side of the hub with the adjustment disc, but the other side is hopelessly stripped. I tried to move the adjustment disc with the tool provided by Mavic, but that didn't work out so well.

    Could someone point me in the right direction for dissassembling the hub and replacing the axle? Is there a place online I can order replacement parts? I've searched to no avail.

    Cheers,
    Pat

    I will have to look at the pair at work to be sure, but I think you stick 5mm wrenches in each end of the axle, break loose the stop nut and unscrew it then unscrew the bearing adjuster and tap the axle thru the hub with a soft mallet.

    I'd appreciate it tremendoulsy. I have the wheel sitting here at work, and I don't see any kind of nut I can get to before the "cups" that hold the bearings. Plus, the tool Mavic includes is a joke, and has been rendered inoperable

    First pull the axle stop off of the axle above the adjuster. It is held on by an o-ring in a groove on the axle, you might have to pull on it pretty hard or if the adjuster has been unscrewed some you might have to screw it back in to free up the stop.
    Then you put a 5mm allen wrench in the axle opposite the adjuster cap and turn the adjuster counter clockwise to remove it. If you pooped all the pins off the mavic tool use the red handle Park spanner SPA-2 Good luck, Chuck

    Cool, got it off of there. It took an adjustable pin spanner but it finally came off. The adjusting disc is murdered, but it is off.

    Thanks again.
