This is my second time doing a belt change but I am stuck. I removed the plastic CVT cover. Removed the 4x 10mm and 7x 8mm....removed the 21mm nut and washers...and I can't get the metal CVT cover off! I've checked I have the 10mm and 8mm bolts and 21mm nut...everything's off. I went through it 5 times.
Any guidance is appreciated!
It looks like the shaft is seized to the bearing on the metal CVT cover. I've found this video and as the cover is removed, you can see that inside the reddish bushing is the metal bearing. You can see it at 4:43 ish...
Well...mine is stuck, and when I spin the wheel, the metal bearing spins with the shaft, as if it's stuck. I'm wondering if that is the case. I've yanked on it hard enough to slide the scoot on the stand...so I don't think it's a matter of not yanking on it hard enough.
Update 2: Found this thread...gonna put some penetrating oil on it and try tmr from other side.
Need help removing transmission cover
Success! After reading the above thread and taking the advise from others, I added some penetrating oil, and using a rubber mallet I tapped on the shaft while yanking on the cover, mostly from the right side. This took around 5 min and I did work it in and out a bit and voila, it popped off! =) Onwards to new clutch!
