I have a cheap mountain bike that one of the kids has trashed. The rear wheel is very wobbly and it appears that this is the inside of the housing that is the problem. It was so loose that some of the ball bearings may have come out.
Can anyone advise how I can try and fix this myself. Happy to get greasy but don't want to have to buy a replacement wheel.
