    I have some of the 10L reels and it's not a problem getting them apart and back together. Just lay the reel handle, shims, bearings, bushings, etc. in a row as you remove them so you will know what order to put them back in. The cover should come off easily without a bunch of stuff shooting out at you.

    Mine had enough grease in them to last a lifetime. They will work a lot better if you get all the axle grease out and put some good stuff on the parts.
