Look Kéo - axle working it's way out

Postby Ypsylon » Thu May 19, 2011 7:32 am

When I headed out for a ride yesterday I noticed that there was no "click" when I entered my left Look Kéo Carbon pedal.

It turns out that one of the two springs is not longer in place, it must have jumped off and now is just dangeling about loosely.

Also the axle the clip mechanism pivots around appears to be working it's way out.

The pedals are at least 5 years old and have seen a lot of miles, so if it's shot, it's shot, but if I can fix it that would be nice.

So, has anyone seen this before? Could I just hammer the axle back in and force the spring back on?

Oh damn, that sucks. I can't imagine how that happened. Sorry, I don't have any idea on how to fix that. Other than to say "just get some Keo Blades" :banana:
