I have a set of Look PP396 pedals and the right pedal (the one I click in and out of all the time) has developed noisy bearings on the spindle. It still spins ok.

I have tried looking up servicing these pedals and have not had much luck. One lbs wants $45 per pedal to change the cartridge bearings. Can they be serviced without replacing the cartridge? If so how and is there an FAQ I could be pointed to (not much of a wrench here).

If it comes down to that much $$ I will just ride them until they don't spin properly and then replace them.

There is a wrench which can be used to pull the axle out, get one of those first. Then, just re-lube it.

I thought you could just get the bearings loos with one of these wossnames:



And then regrease the bearings. I know Look recommend doing it twice a year but leave you up the creek as to how to do it.

The "sealed" bearings are just about impossible to relube. Buy the plastic tool and replace the bearings.
