    Can anyone help or point me in the right direction?

    The left down shifter suddenly stopped working on my wheel.

    Has anyone seen this and been able to fix it. Or does anyone have a link explaining how I might fix it?

    Thanks.

    Just read the link and it sounds spot on.

    I'll be tearing down when I get home.

    Thanks very much.

    I've taken my wheel apart following the instructions in the link above.

    Left paddle is flexing so not touching the button on the circuit board. Might need to replace it.

    Just an update for anyone interested. My left paddle shift was very brittle and eventually fell apart. That was the reason for it not making contact and not working.
