I have done a search but find no info-

Can Keo's be rebuilt? Mine have a slight click at nearly every
revolution and I wonder what I can do about it.

Who sells the parts? I don't want to go the ends of the earth
to save the pedals, but I like them and would like to save them


thanks

Absolutely! Any Look dealer can service the pedals.

Cracked open the pedal and can see a pair of sealed bearings on the axle which are held on by a collet of sorts and
then way deeper in the pedal body is a needle/roller bearing which is mechanically embedded in the
composite shell. Doubtful that the needle bearing can be removed...

Anyone with any experience here?

You can get bearings from enduro if you have the tools to press off the collar holding the bearings and press back together. Takes tools, knowldge and touch.
You can also have your shop order the complete cartridge. Comes as axle with all the bearings and collars installed. Just thread new one in.
A huge thing is to use blue loctite on threads when threading the spindle collar back together. Don't force it too tight. It is plastic on plastic and easy to kill the threads.

This makes sense-

But it appears that the needle bearing is
not removable- is this correct? thanks

great tutorial- but makes no mention of the needle bearing issue....

I assume that if the needle bearings go, the pedal is shot....

well, the point was that it is possible to take them apart and replace them - the cartridge bearings aren't permanently attached to the pedal.

I have a slight click every pedal rotation too. Mine occurs just on my right pedal of a 1st generation Keo 2 Max. It's pretty annoying after awhile, especially when the rest of the bike is running smoothly.

Would replacing the whole spindle, as explained in inertia's tutorial, fix this click? Or, is the click probably in the needle bearings?

$60 though for the spindles (+ time to fix them) almost makes it a toss up, when the Max 2s or even the Blades CroMo aren't much more money from some Euro dealers.
