Removal Of Rear Axle.








Hi All.
I am having grief.
I am trying to replace a bearing in a rear axle but cannot manage to remove rear axle. Are there special tools or a knack of doing this.
It is a 16" wheel from a early electric bike.
The hub itself is a three speed one that operates on a push rod sort of thing.

Any help PLEASE !!!!!

Don't know anything.about.this but something.is holding.it in.
Check the other side for a circlip or a nut.
Does it still spin?

Bikes: '''96 Litespeed Catalyst, '05 Litespeed Firenze, '06 Litespeed Tuscany, '12 Surly Pacer, All are 3x8,9 or 10. It is hilly around here!

This is just a guess but the hub appears to have cartridge bearings. The axle may have an interior shoulder that pushes out the bearing as the axle is driven out of the hub.

You sure it's threaded & not a circlip?

or does the whole silver disc unscrew


Not everything was designed to be dismantlable for servicing...
