    CS8111 Intex Combo pump help!!!

    I have the following filter which when I started for the first time this past weekend was really loud. From what I've read is more likely the bearing are shot and need replacing.
    Well I've reached the end of my limit in what I am able to do and looking for some insight on how to get the impeller and bearing out
    Here are some pics of what I mean

    Just so you know
    I've tried unscrewing the bolt that shows on the front of the impeller but it doesn't turn

    Welcome to TFP!!!

    I thought those pumps were generally considered to not be serviceable. Looks like you have made some progress, but I have no idea what to suggest beside a C-clip pliers.

    So I was able to pull the impeller away a little from the frame and found a c-clip hidden behind

    Bearing number for this model is 608Z if anyone cares to document it somewhere

    Update
    Well after a 5hr battle last night with this machine, i've replaced the bearings and it's back to purring like a cat.
    I will say that it did test my patience more than once putting this thing back together a few times but happy that i was able to get it working and save myself +$200 in buying a replacement.
