Hi Subba,

Pl check online, you will find step by step servicing tutorials of most popular reels. In addition, you will find the schematic layout of the reel in the reel box. Otherwise, this also can be located on the web. Replacing of drag washer's is normally a simpler task as these are generally located outside the main reel drive mechanism. Carbontex Drag upgrade kits are freely available on the net for most reels. A reasonably skilled person will be able to use the schematic layout & tutorial to dissassemble the drag & put it back.

However, this is advisable only for basic reels. Complex reels need special tools & best left to professional reel repair shops. Also possibly, some of the older angler's will be able to help.

Pl share the details of your reel, I will look for the tutorial.

The schematic diagram is available on the site. Go the Site index & click on "Parts Diagram". In the search box type "Sweepfire" & select "Spinning" in type of reel. You will get a list of diagram's. Choose the 3550RA & click. You will get the schematic. The method to open is rear drag is very clear in the schematic diagram.

Pl elaborate on the type of problem. I open & service my reels & have repaired a few spinning reels. If a part is broken, you will have to import the part. If you want me to take a try, you will have to ship it to Pune. However, no guarantee & NO charges. Only shipping cost. Other option is to ship it to a Daiwa repair centre.
