    Hi all,

    Due to a couple years of clamping and unclamping my wheel to my desk the threads on the bolt part have worn a bit thin, meaning that my wheel no longer clamps to my desk strong enough for it to be used for racing.

    Does anyone have any idea where i can purchase a replacement bolt from? I'll message thrustmaster but they take a little while to reply and they'll probably charge more than expected to send one to me in the UK.

    Or does anyone hard mount their wheel and would be willing to sell me their bolt?

    Thanks!

    Just had to order one for the T150, since the Ebay seller broke it during wheel shipment. It's 25€ including 15€ shipping from France to Germany. Though the T150's bolt is a bit different to the T300 and not fully made from metal so you might have to pay more

    That sucks, it's pretty expensive for something that doesn't seem like a very high value part.

    Thanks for letting me know!

    My T500 came from the buyer without a desk clamp.
    I simply purchased a piece of marine ply...contoured, drilled and screwed it to the base of the wheel using the other two holes.
    I then 'C-clamped' that to my desk.
    It does not move...not even a little bit.
