    Campagnolo ErgoPower rebuild

    I recently disassembled both shifters, because I was having problems with inaccurate shifts.

    In the process I found that one of the g springs was bent, and after tinkering with it, it broke.

    Now, given the fact that both shifters are completely disassembled, and since I am doing this repair the first time, is there anything else that would be worth replacing?

    Which group and what year is this? What's the condition of the index gear? How about the index spring carrier?

    Chorus 10 speed, 2006. Index gear and spring carrier seem to be in good shape. I will post a picture tomorrow, currently its midnight and the lighting is off for shooting pictures.

    Springs and spring carrier. The index rarely if ever wears out or breaks. The springs will wear a bit, the major issue is the carrier...which is why those parts are packaged in a kit.

    I imagine that the wear on the spring is normal or should I replace that?

    There are some indentations on the spring carrier on the right shifter. How bad is that?

    That spring can wear/break but the ones you should be concerned w/ are the ergo springs, or 'G' springs. The spring you have shown doesn't affect shifting performance...unless it breaks.

    Got it thanks. That wear on the carrier is something I should be concerned about or I can keep using it?

    Replace it. That little bit of wear will make the shifter feel mushy and not hold gears as it should.
