35mm plastic gearwheel broken bearing
A white plastic gearwheel is loose inside the printer, its 3mm black plastic bearing has broken off its chassis part. Please advise how to find a replacement chassis part.
The gearwheel is marked 1 AES >POM+PE<
The wheel is in the so-called rear cover assembly, place where plastic spigot bearing broke is clear to see even after I shaved it smooth. Plastic is about 4mm thick, not sure whether to try & tap it for 6BA thread or put a bolt through and nut behind, concerned it may impede paper moving on the other side. Surely fixable though.
Is this a good question?
