    I have an older 36" Ariens snowthrower.

    The bearings near the wheels need replacing. The axle(s) must come out to replace the bearings. The axle(s) is joined together under the machine inside some type of planetary gear (for lack of a better term). Not sure how the each side of the axle pulls out of this planetary gear, anyone know?
