Introduction

Due to long time use of the gear buttons, the components inside start to work poorly. This leads to unability to change gears while driving.

For the button replacement, just go on to the Farnell website and type in the reference code 1656426 which points to a ALPS SKHHLMA010. This one is a little softer than the original one but do the job perfectly.

If you wish to have one which is firmer then try this one 1656427 (ALPS SKHHLNA010) or even this one 1656428 (ALPS SKHHLPA010, but maybe really too firm...).

    Hi, where can I find such Disassembly Guide? I can't find it anywhere on the net and I've asked Thrustmaster via their costumer service and they don't have anything. Thanks
