Changing Roller bearing - Daiwa reel certate

edited April 2014 in Reels
I have a few enquiries about this roller bearing from my pm so I'll make a post here.

I'm not sure if the below applies to all daiwa reel or just some "real four" models.
But It is the same for my 1500, 2500, 2500R and 3500HD certate (04" model) as well as 2500R luvias.

the bearing size is the same for the a/m reels:
I usually buy a few pieces whenever I pass by the bearing shop. Kian Ho (Google it) gave me the best price. $3/-

I'll use the 2500 schematics in-order to explain better.

1) Remove screw (part no.22), the whole roller assembly should be separated from the bail arm.
2) There is this tiny C-shape wire or retainer ring (O-ring A part no.25: G47-1101 on your schematics) that is holding the bearing to the roller, that you need to dig out. The technique used here is the same as removing the retainer ring of the cover from a ball bearing, which I learn from alantani site (google it). I use a size 1 thin-shank hook to dig it out.
3) if you manage to dig out the tiny ring, the bearing can be push out from the other side.

Put some grease over it before you attempt to dig it out, this helps to prevent the ring from flying :lol:

Sometime I can get this ring out in less than a minute, but sometimes it took me hours :(

Good Luck

    I was trying to dig out that C-clip the other day, where it flew off to nowhere and cannot be found.

    The next day, I found my missing original C-clip at a corner in my room :lol: ,the diameter is 0.5mm.

    Do you have problem digging that C-clip out?
    Below are 2 of the setups I used.
