Hi guys - have to admit my ignorance here - how do I change the bearings on this hub as they are shot (only been in there 11 years!)?

Couple of photos attached.

I think you can download the instructions from hope web site. I have similar hubs and used large hammer/screwdriver technique after removing the axles via the approved hope methods.

I also believe that you can get FAG bearings to fit, just take them along to your local bearing specialist.

I just had a look at the website but it only has instructions for the newer hubs - so I'm still a bit stuck - can anybody help?

The instructions for the rear are at :

If you follow the instructions for bearing removal then you wont go wrong.

I have done a few now and they are pretty easy, although they are tight. Just baist everything in WD40 a day before you try, the bearings should drive out OK.
