Hey Guys,

Have a question for servicing my BB30+ shell on my bike. I installed ceramic bearings into the BB shell with Loctite 609. I got two solid years out of the installation click/creak free. I am now hearing clicks down there and I want to press the bearings out and reinstall with 609.

Is there anyway to remove the old 609 residue without heat? Do I even need to remove the residue before reinstalling the bearings with a fresh thin coat of 609?

Any tips experiences appreciated!

Cheers,
G

Removal instructions are here. Carbon or aluminum shell?

Some of the helicopter forums are suggesting rubbing alcohol and a wire brush. Of all the solvents I've seen mentioned RA is the least aggressive, which if you have a carbon frame/shell is important. If you have an Aluminum frame/shell you can go a little harder with solvents and mechanical removal.
