    Hi guys,

    I've got a Logitech G29 here which started to make problems somewhere last year.
    A paddleshift was missed here and there.
    It started with the upshift paddle and got worse over time. A support thread in the logitech forum did not help (a lot of people were complaining about their after sales support there).
    As I'm using it quite frequently I also did not want to miss it for I don't know how many weeks a replacement takes.

    So I repaired it myself by exchanging the switch on it's platine.
    I've had no experience in soldering, learned that by watching a short ytube video.
    The spare part cost 2€ in a local electronics shop and it works very good.
    From opening the wheel to have it running again took me 30minutes.

    Yesterday I've also replaced the downshift switch, it also started to make problems.

    As I've heard of this problem (among other quality issues with the G29) from others I thought I'd share my experience here, maybe you want to go the same way.

    Here's the little faulty bastard in picture:

    This is where I got mine as I had a faulty one on the downshift on a G25: 'Paddle switch'
