Answers :

After you remove the hub you then need to remove the inner gear and spring, this is done by removing the ring, look at the front edge of the gear, you will see ring, use small screw driver or pick to remove, it just sits in groove to hold hub gear and spring in place, when ring is removed then slide the rest of the parts to hub out, note some model will have a small star screw holding center gear in, remove screw and pull center gear out,

Next you will then see nut , these nuts are not too tight, you can use a chisel and hammer to break free if you do not have socket, after the first nut is removed you will then see a washer that has many small holes, that washer is a lock washer, it locks next washer in place , remove washer and you will be at last nut, take a look at the nut , the axle tube will have a slot, make sure there is not a slide pin going into nut to lock it, some models have a lock key, if you do then remove it with a magnet, you may need to wiggle nut to release pressure off the key, if you do not have the lock key then just remove the nut, take note the inner nut has a pin on the front face, when installing you will need to line it up to get lock washer on, here is a diagram to help you , good day and again these nuts are not tightened alot or bearing damage will occur just snug and chisel and hammer will loosen them. please let me know the outcome.9_2_2012_6_30_29_pm.gif
