You need a special tool that nobody stocks, to take them apart.

vice grips dont really seem to be plastic friendly [obviously]. i actually got one apart with vice grips and a screwdriver. i wasnt so lucky with the other side; it is still ridable, however, it wont come apart or go back together.

Send an email through their website, www.bianchiusa.com and see if they can help you. Who knows, they might even send you a new set of pedals.
I don't think that bianchiusa ever answers their emails.MR_GRUMPY

Do a search on Google for Veltec Sports. That is the US Distributor of Look pedals. Send them an email and ask them for advice about breaking down your pedals. They should know the exact model you are talking about since I think they only made one set of pedals in Celeste Green (if that's what you have) so they can most likely help.

They have been good about replying to any emails I have ever sent them...

thanks. i am checking out Veltec Sports, as well as a few other options. I am not sure if the bearings need replaced. I feel that it's something minor.
