Sounds like the bearings are going out, or one of the gears .

well it just started not more than a few minutes ago...I was driving and the car slid and the FFB kicked in, so I fought the slide but I wasn't hard on it and then all the sudden it starts clicking when turning...can anything be done to save her?

Keep us informed, I'd like to know what you find if you do surgery.

will do

...I'm quite expierienced in the matter, but its always good to get a collective knowledge. I have modified a madcatz sega dreamcast wheel to work for pc. I have modified a logitech driving force wheel to work with a set of generic xbox wheel pedals. So here's to hoping all goes well

I know what your saying, I built my own wheel several years ago for N2003 league racing by gutting a Microsoft Sidewinder wheel. A little "long in the tooth" by today's standards, but it's bullet proof and is still going strong.

Hey its whatever works. I'm sure its a great wheel. The home grown ones tend to always whether the storm much better than the shiny out of the box ones. Btw, I've had this question I've been meaning to have answered...I can't remember if NR2003 was the one with newspaper headlines or if that was NR4? I used to play both but can't remember for the life of me.

Logitech are slack as can be when it comes to replacing products. I know someone whose Gear lever on his G25 broke, so they asked him to sent them a picture of the whole wheel smashed up (which he just googled), and they sent him a whole new one. Needless to say, he repaired the gear lever and sold the new one for profit! LogitechFail!

Also, they don't keep track of replacements very well, I know a friend who claimed ANOTHER wheel claming that one had broken - he wasn't even the same person!

Crazy stuff, good luck getting it sorted.

oh, and don't open the back if it's still under warranty - they probably have a sticker to check you haven't tampered with it.

well lads...I'm screwed. I took a look in it and one of the cogwheels that makes the whole thing work has one of the plastic ridges worn down or broken...To fix that I'd have to buy a new cogwheel...I think

I agree same as Australia they wont spend the money to support wheel
repair so its their bad luck if people take advantage.

Wouldnt they just write-off any returns or new against unsold ones.
Better bottomline then running a service centre.

You must shop in store then you have no drama its nothing to do with the shop owner if you have a RMA number from logitech.

All they do is check the box it has wheels and pedals sometimes they dont even open them.

More than likely it was N2003, we used to have alot of league races and some of the Nascar drivers would drop in. But alot have left and went to iRacing.

Alot of people don't realize that the basic engine for iRacing came from N2003.
