Ordered a replacement wheel along with a new wheel axle (stud roller). Placed the new axle into the new wheel and then simply snapped the new wheel/axle into place onto the lower rack where the broken wheel had previously been. Very easy. If you are ordering a replacement wheel a new axle/stud roller is an absolute must. The part has been redesigned and is a vast improvement over the previous wheels axle resulting in a much sturdier wheel and allows the wheels to roll easier. I plan to order replacement axle/stud rollers for all my lower rack wheels because I have now realized the actual problem which caused my wheel to fall off in the first place was due to the design of the axle. Many thanks to previous reviewers who suggested ordering the additional part.
