Bearing Replacement

Lately, I have been getting a creaking kind of sound coming from my machine. I've narrowed it down to one of the bearings on the rear X axis/shaft, in particular, the bearing on the left of the machine, closest to the rear.

What is involved in replacing one of these bearings, is it just a matter of loosening the pulley/s and sliding the rod out to get to the bearing or am I better off removing the side panel and doing it that way ?

    Don't remove the side panel. loosen the pulleys as you explained. Just make sure they are nice and tight when you put it all back.

     

    Thanks mate. Something to do when I get my extruder upgrade

    Sweet. Let me know how the upgrade goes. I'm looking at getting one myself.

     

    Will do, lead time when I ordered was listed at 2-3 weeks so hopefully I get it sooner rather than later
