I wonder if that one comes with a bike engineer too!

Long time since this thread has seen the light of day.  My bottom bracket is making all sorts of creaking and clicking noises particularly under load, a bit of googling and youtubing suggests I'm going to need one of these and one of these to actually dis-assemble it, but the question to the experts out there is, any hints or tips for what I'm looking out for?  Most of what I've read so far seems to suggest grease and re-assemble or replace.

I had the same on my winter bike earlier in the year, I needed to replace one of the cups as it had siezed, I got an intergrated version of the above;

But also found that i needed to ensure i greased the crank arms on replacement as they started creeking.

 

I'm definitely no expert though
