Pedal hanger removal


Recommended Posts

Hi, I am trying to replace the bearings on my MCM5 and have gotten the motor off. The problem is the side with the phase wires coming out of the axle, because I can't fit a socket wrench over top the wires without cutting them off. Is there any way to unscrew the nut holding the pedal hanger on without cutting the wires?

Many people take an angle grinder to a socket to cut a slot for the wires... but you can also use a podger (socket open on both ends, mostly used for assembling scaffolding. search for "podger wrench"). Amazon has a plethora, Harbor Freight and the other big box stores must carry them as well.
