Why put a fishing reel back together?

How to remove a spool from a frame?

How to clean a cogwheel?

Clean out the faceplate of any dirt and debris. Check the teeth on the cogwheel to ensure that the gear isn’t stripped. Apply the grease/lube along with both sets of teeth on the cogwheel.

How to put oil on worm gear?

On the worm gear itself, put one drop of oil on the tip and one drop on the white collar just below the gear. Slide the worm gear into the worm gear cover. When sliding the assembly back into the frame, remember that the worm gear is tabbed, so it will flush into the frame when seated correctly. If the plastic sleeve fell out of the worm gear cover, make sure it’s oriented correctly. If you have problems seating the assembly, usually, it’s because the sleeve is backward.

What is a C clip on a reel?

Here, you will see a small C-clip. Be VERY careful with this clip. I’ve lost way too many, so I keep spares handy. This C-clip not only keeps your handle nut from getting loose but it keeps your handle gear shaft tight and down to align your gears inside the faceplate (just some FYI). If you lose this, it isn’t the end of the world, but you could notice some skipping issues with your reel. Not a fun time.
