Replacing bearings on Tacx Neo Gen 1

I have heard lots of bad things about Garmin’s approach to supporting their trainers. I have tried contacting them but they take a long time to come back with a useless answer so I am looking elsewhere for advice.

I discovered the outboard bearing of my Tacx was shot after it started making some pretty strange noises. I’d like to replace it in the hope the noises go away. It seems like i need a bearing puller and a £60 DT Swiss tool. Is this correct? Has anyone documented the process? Is it easy?

As an aside, is there anyone in the UK that has the Dt Swiss tool they could hire out to me so I can do the work? I don’t fancy paying £60 for a tool I’ll only use once.

The FB page for Neo owners is pretty active, so it might be worth checking out:

Here’s a link to some YouTube videos which might cover it:

This site (run by the same people behind the FB one liked) is another great resource without the FB baggage.
