Hope freehub removal
#1
In the videos it looks so easy to snap the freehub off a pro 2 hub but does anyone else find it virtually impossible ?, my lock ring tool has a spindle on so I can't use the 2p method, any tips

Both of mine are an utter cock to remove, only a couple of times have i been able to remove it without universal tool 101 >Sad  Are you changing the bearings? if so support the hub on top of a large socket, get another socket the same diameter as the axle and put on a long extension, then bash the axle through with a rubber mallet. I put loads of copper slip on the axle last time so hopefully it'll come off a bit easier next time.

I have heard mentions of the 2p meathod, how dose that work?

you have to flip the 2p , if it s tails you hit it hard and if heads you hit it really hard while calling it all the expletive names you can muster  Big Grin

Changing the pawl springs, i serviced it a while ago when i eventually previously got it off, when i cleaned the hub one of the springs was in a bad way so i have 4 new ones to put in.

The 2p trick works by placing a 2p under the lock ring, screw it down and then unscrew, place another under it, screw it down a bit more and this forces the freehub off.

I take you have removed the spacer / ends. If No they are a real bugger. If Yes they should very very easily snap off in your hand just like in the video  Wink

Cheers. Mine has a spindle too, will have to find a cheap POS one just for removing jammed freehubs.

My 4 month old one came off with the XT cassette when I tried to pull that off. Never had that before. Its just popping the seal bit I think, might be able to lever it out but probably wreck it
