Just finished pulling mine apart to survey what is going on.

Top race as good a new (tempting to leave but I wont), bottom race is partially seized / rusted, with indentations in the part that sits in the frame.

Wondering what the cause of this is - condensation running down the inside onto / into the bearings, or is the bottom seal not sealing?

Either way they are being replaced, but I'll see if I can source a better lower seal, plenty of grease in there though!!
