    The left paddle has stopped working on my mates Momo Red. I had a site bookmarked that had a guide that showed you how to strip the wheel down but the site is now dead. Anyone got a good link for a site that shows you how to dismantle the wheel and specifically to repair a paddle switch?

    Regards

    the left paddle on my G25 has started playing up, not always down shifting.

    looking at my old Mono both that and the G25 have 6 alen bolts holding the wheel on. remove those and this exposes the paddle shift switches but be carefull the wires to the buttons are short.

    theres a picture here but it doesnt show much http://web.axelero.hu/mozso/momo_e3.html

    you can try spraying some contact cleaner, but i would try and remove the board and replace the switch, which you shoul dbe able to get from Maplins for a couple of quid.

    good luck

    Cheers Nigel. I have had the wheel front off my original G25 when the left button failed (seems to be a pattern here with the left-hand side), Logitech exchanged the wheel in that case. There are a few guides to dismantling the Momo Racing etc, are we saying they are all very similar in design\layout and parts?

    This Red Momo has sentimental value, I had it from new and used to play F1 2001 on it, I then passed it on to my mate when I got the G25 and he got in to Sim Racing, she is a little old now but I can't let my baby die :frown:

    If anyone has a none working Red Momo and would care to sell a paddle switch\PCB let me know.

    My mate does also have a Momo Racing so could the parts be taken from that?

    Regards

    if you can strip it down to the board, wouldn`t it be easy to just unsolder the switch and replace it with a new one?
