How To Remove/Clean/Degrease/Lube/Install A Freehub Body On A Bike Wheel

Posted by on in Freewheels & Cassettes


I show how to remove the freehub body, flush it out with solvent, lubricate it, and then install it back onto the wheel. This can be done if the freehub feels rough or sticky. This video also includes and hub overhaul.

Bike tools that I used in this video:
Park Tool SR-2 Sprocket Remover (chain whip)
This is a shop grade tool. But a less expensive chain whip such as this one by Avenir (1/2″ x 3/32″ size) will work fine:

Pedros Cassette Lock Ring Remover

Pedros 15mm Cone Wrench
