Yes, I think so.

Just why do you want to rebuild and not replace?

Because as far as I can see, a rebuild would cost pennies for the new bearings, but a replacement seems to be GBP50 wherever I look! The teeth aren't worn at all which is another factor.

Pardon me, but which way would you replace the bearings ?
It seems one could just replace the balls.
(Which does not make sense for me.)

That's what I meant - 'bearings' can also refer to the balls in English. To be honest, I'm still sceptical that it's the freewheel making the noise, as it is in a locked position when the sound is happening, but it's another thing to tick off the list.

A little bit further along - I wondered if the noise might be from the bottom bracket rather than the hub, and the noise was being transferred down the bottom tube to make it sound like it was at the back of the bike.

So I removed the bottom bracket and took the bearings out. I found this mess on one side:

I've ordered a new set of bearings. It's important to note that, although the bearings in the bike are labelled '6002-2RS', they aren't the same size as those with the same name offered for sale on eBay etc. The dimensions are 31(outer dia.)x16(inner dia.)x10(width)mm so I've ordered some 163110-2RS bearings instead.

That is 100% correct!

...and I'm really very surprised about this!
The bearing number does not appear at the forum search (except in this thread).
So I think it is just logical to say: "Seems that is a very rare issue."

Many thanks for the information Image

I ordered some 6002-2RS and when they arrived I discovered they were a different size, so I measured mine with callipers and went searching!
