• Before you start

    You'll need a soft faced/dead blow Hammer, some internal circlip pliers and a bench vice.

  • Step 1

    First job is to remove the outer bearing and the bearing spacer sleeve. We have a special bearing puller for this HERE

  • Step 2

    Identify the inner bearing size - this is usually the same as the outer bearing but not always! Here we have a 6803 bearing with a 17mm bore.

  • Step 3

    Carefully removet the circlip that retains the inner freehub bearing. Sometimes it is a snap ring with no eye holes for pliers - you can still get these out but its a bit of a faf.

  • Step 4

    Grab the vice block and fit the 17mm donut then clamp off to one side of the vice (for clearance). Then pop your 17mm dummy axle into the 17mm end of the stainless drift and fit the striker head to the other side as pictured.

  • Step 5

    Insert the drift/dummy axle assembly through the back of the freehub bearing then guide the dummy axle into the vice donut as pictured.

  • Step 6

    Give the striker a few taps and the bearing will make its way out of the freehub nice and square.

  • Job DONE!

    All finished! now it's time to give the freehub a deep clean and then you can put the new bearings in with our Hub Bearing Install Set ;)
