    Does anyone know how to dismantle the shimano pd-515 pedals in order to service them, grease the
    bearings etc. i have found the shimano web-site and the exploded view diagram there but it was much
    help inhow actually to do it!

    Unscrew the plastic collar all the way, then the bearing assembly just pulls out. This is very
    easily done with the (cheap) shimano tool (2GBP) sold for the purpose (it even has arrows on showing
    which way to turn to unscrew each pedal in case you get confused over LH and RH threads).

    It is not usually necessary to completely disassemble the bearing assembly - it is rather fiddly to
    put back together if you do - as you can clean and grease the complete unit.
