    Exclamation MSX Carrier Bearing Fused to Driveshaft....help

    2004 MSX 150

    Trying to disassemble the carrier bearing/seals. I have all the parts and tools now.

    It appears that the bearing has fused itself to the shaft. I have a new shaft, but how do I get the thing out without damaging the actual carrier? There is not a lot of wiggle room there.


    All I have is a new bearing and seals to put in it. I believe the carrier is discontinued.

    A few others have had a similar problem, on MSX 140 and Matrix. The bearing gets rusted onto the drive shaft.

    Since you are replacing the drive shaft and bearings, I think you just need to find a way to drive the shaft out of the carrier. If the bearing and seals come out at the same time, that is OK.

    Have a look for the other threads involving the MSX drive shaft and bearing carrier.

    Did you unscrew the shaft from the coupler?
    If you did pop the big inside seal off the housing and hit the bearing with some rust lube spray

    Good idea - just choose a rust-dissolving product that won't attack the rubber inside the carrier.

    Soaked it for a couple of days with PB. Then I actually took my floor jack handle which was the perfect diameter, Left the shaft screwed in, slid the jack handle over the shaft and into the housing and smacked on it. I got it to move enough to get an air chisel on the thing from the inside and pushed it off the rest of the way.

    Then I had the outer part of the bearing still stuck inside the carrier. I had to moisten that too with PB and then hit it with mild heat and the air chisel.

    Man, these things were fused on the shaft. It helped that I had a new shaft waiting so I didn't care about damage.

    I guess the hard part is done. We'll see.
