|I havent tried to overhaul my pedals yet, but I was going thinking of doing it soon. Anyone got any advice, suggestions, instructions? Is it even possible to overhaul these pedals myself without special tools ? (I do most of my own wrenching)

|As for the springs, generally they are trouble-free. If you do need to replace one, just get the correct metric-sized bolt that will thread into the pins that retain the springs. Clamp the head of the bolt in a vise, and gently tap on the pedal body to extract the pin, using the bolt as a puller. Now you can remove the springs to replace as needed. Assembly is the opposite order, just use a brass hammer to tap the pins in. If you are concerned due to the slight play in the axle/pedal, this is normal, but you can easily pull the bodies off the axles to check the bearings/bushings too.|

|The pedals aren't spinning freely anymore on the axles, so i thought I would take a look. For teh axles, do I just unscrew the dustcap on the outside of the pedal and undo the bolt inside?
Thanks for the advice.

|yep, just remove the cap, then the 10mm nut under it on the axle end. Then tap the pedal off the axle. There is a small bearing on the end of the axle, and a bushing on the inner crankarm end. If you clean and regrease be sure that you use grease that will not attack the bushings, as I believe that they are possibly a plastic, but it has been some time ago that I had mine apart to install ti axles, so I may be wrong there.|| |
