Shimano's service instructions for the Nexus 7-speed internal-gear hub assume that you will replace the entire axle unit. Taking disassembly past the point where instructions are available is all too easy. You might also want to cannibalize parts to assemble an axle that works. Reader Keith Lang has provided instructions in two PDF files.
Note: this is advanced mechanical work, for skilled mechanics and inveterate tinkerers!
