    After a bit of help. My left pedal was creaking so i undid the dust cover (it’s a shimano style spd)

    undid the locknut to regrease the bearings but it has loosened the nut which adjusts the bearings. I have sockets to fit both nuts but how do you hold the bearing nut at the correct position while tightening the locknut?

    Is there a special tool? or a technique to do this? I thought i had it but the pedal has tightened right up as they have both tightened on the race.

    Try looking through this link on servicing SPD pedals.

    Cheers Gunner, on the money as usual!!!

    Now invest £47 in the tool required …………….or buy new 520’s at £30

    Tough decision!!!
