The photo depicts the current castor, but the exploded view, shows the earlier type.
The front one is easy to replace, however, the back ones require the whole machine to be stripped, not an easy job if you've not done it before. AND ELECTRICAL COMPETENCE IS STRONGLY ADVISED
HOWEVER: to avoid having to strip the machine, we're now beginning to stock Pn. 147-1040-510 which allows the worn out wheel to be carefully pulled off and replaced, instead of unscrewing the castor complete, however, this is a new item for us, and stock may be limited.
If the front wheel is good and it's the old grey type with the ball bearing in it, then it may be replaced with the new wheel, and this wheel moved to replace a single rear wheel that's broken.
In that case, carefully lever the back broken wheel, straight off, in line with the axle on which it pivots.
If you haven't busted it, you'll see how it's done. Then do the same with the front, check the C clip is still on the pivot axle and you have the ball bearing and replace these parts on the rear.
Then use a new wheel on the front of the machine.
UPDATE since mid 2014, these wheels on the 15 to 20 YEAR old machines have begun to break up, and we're asked each month to replace a couple of sets.
