Failed x axis bearing
How can I get a replacement X axis idler bearing?
My i3 MK3 is fairly new and it looks like the idler bearing has failed already. The idler was squeaking and when I investigated I saw what looks like it coming apart. The bearing is frozen and the idler is now turning on the mounting screw. How can I get a replacement?
contact Prusa through the Chat option on the E shop page.
I am not happy about the single bearing idler that Prusa supply so I use ebay twin bearing idlers, 20 tooth diameter, 6mm belt width with a 3mm bearing hole, and I have not had a failure since... I use the toothed version, there is also a smooth version which should be OK if you prefer to keep the smooth surface
Thanks! What specs should I search for on ebay or Amazon.

Wait, let me try this first. Thanks again.
