    I'm looking at buying replacement pedals for My DFGT Wheel. I am looking at trying and getting a set of G25/27 pedals. Just wanting to know what is a good price for them or if anyone got any for sale. I'm from Scotland UK any info would be much appreciated.

    You need to get the Leo Bodnar cable as well as, the G27 pedals work independently with a USB connector box in to the PC not plugged into the wheel like the default set, that's all you need

    Clean your potentiometers, or get some new ones... only cost 5 dollars each.
    Than they would work like new again.

    If you open the pedals up, clean them and use a bit of contact spray you should be able to fix it.
    I have mine since 5 years and recently got more spiking. I found a more detailed guide including removing the potis etc, but opening, cleaning and putting contact spray on the potis without any further disassembly worked great for me.
    It is a 10min job + the waiting a bit until the contact spray is gone and my pedals work like on day 1.
    I had to repeat it now as the spiking came back after a few month, but as I still really like the pedals I don't care to invest 10min 4 times a year :D

    /edit: Found the guide first result on google: http://www.gtplanet.net/forum/threa...ogitech-g25-g27-pedal-pontentiometers.247510/
    I only went until step 4 and cleaned as much as I could and used contact spray. Might not be the best longterm solution, but it is a lot faster and less complicated and less risky.
