Hi everyone,
I noticed my pedal ticking again and noticed that the spindle had turned about 1 turn out... On talking to a few online shops there seems to be a special tool that is needed to tighten the spindle which I cant find anywhere... is there an alternative tool for tightening?
Thanks

If the noise is a result of the spindle being loose, you better get it tightened fast - it's plastic on plastic there and pressure from cranking on it when it's loose can cracking the body easily. Use a bit of loctite on it to ensure it stays tight. Do not over-tighten it too!

It is 19mm. I've pulled them apart before.
