Step 1: Gather Materials
-Set of allen wrenches
-Pen or pencil
Note: Your rollerblades may have a different screw type than an hex (6 sided) allen. If this is the case, any local hardware store will have the correct size wrench.
Step 2: Remove Screws and Pins From Wheel Base
2. Remove all 8 screws attaching the wheels to the wheel base
3. Push out each pin using a pen tip
4. Thread the screw back into the pin (not attached to the rollerblade) so neither get lost
The wheels should fall out once the pin is removed. If they do not come out on their own, remove by pulling the wheel straight down from the wheel base.
Step 3: Remove Bearings From Wheel
2. Push the wheel down into the pen until a bearing pushes out.
Note: This step may require a lot of force. You will not ruin any part of the bearing.
3. Remove the other bearing and spacer using a pen.
Step 4: Clean Bearing and Spacer
Step 5: Replace Spacer and Bearing Onto Wheel
2. Push the other bearing into the opposite side of the wheel making sure to align with the spacer previously installed.
Note: Some bearings need to be faced a certain way, so check this before you install the bearings.
Step 6: Replace Wheels on Wheel Base
Wheels do not ware out evenly because of the way skaters must skate. The inside of the wheels will ware out before the outside so if this is the case, flip the wheels around so the larger side of the wheel is on the inside of the skate. This will make the wheels last a lot longer.
Repeat these steps for the other rollerblade.
