You don't need to pull the dust cap off the hubs to repack them with new bearings and grease. If you want to remove the freehub body (not really neccessary unless you want to replace it or you have a freehub buddy and your going to regrease it) you need a 10mm Allen wrench. Otherwise, if its working fine...leave it alone.Prettym1k3 said:Checked the Shimano forum. Didn't find much.
I'm rebuilding my hub tonight. I know that I need 1/4" bearings (18 of them). I'm sure I can pull the freehub off pretty easily with some cone wrenches, but working on the freehub body freaks me out a little bit because of that whole Shimano-sucks-and-when-you-pull-the-dust-cap-off-it-destroys-said-dustcap business.
Anyone pulled the dustcap off without wrecking it, and been able to re-install it?
