Hi! I've bought a pair of Crank Brothers Candy 3 SE from someone and I love the color half black, half red.
The pedals have some little movement and I was thinking to buy a replacement kit. Before that I was trying to remove the axle cap.
I used a coin, a screwdriver, WD40, but it wasn't successful enough.

Any tips?

try some real penetrating oil. Kroil is my personal fave, liquid wrench is a common one.
Heat, but i dont know if theres plastic parts in there.
Impact screwdriver. But clamp that body in a vise to keeo from moving and press down hard to try and keep it from ramping out of slot.

They are the worst. You almost need to grind down a screwdriver so it sits up hard against the nut and without any smooth edges or chamfer to allow it to slip out.

Replace the nuts with new aftermarket Titanium ones with an allen head, once you get the stock one out.
