    Help me out, Front Carrier Bearing Replacement

    How? I have the carrier out but have no clue how to get at the bearings. The search feature on this site sucks. Stock VXL Stampede.

    Thanks.

    So does the hex bolt come off first? How? Then press the whole axle and bearing out from the back side?

    Take it out of the castor block
    Take of the 12mm hex and pull the pin out
    Slide the stub axal out
    Pop out the bearings

    Hope this helps

    Does the hex just pry off? I don't want to go buy more parts or do any more work than I have to. I just got done replacing the chasis which kind of sucked. After getting it put back together I noticed the very loose front end. Narrowed it down to the bearings.

    Yo dont have to remove the carrier from the caster block.
    Take tire off.
    Pop hex off with anything flat like a screwdriver.
    Pull the axle pin out
    push the axle out through the back, paying close attention where the axle shims are.
    Use a small flat driver to pop the bearings out.
    Wanna bash at Greenwood Bashplex in Pittsburgh ???
