    I would like to order a replacement fan for my CSR-E, can someone tell me what the spec of the fan are, the size and the voltage?

    Its an 80mm 24VDC 0.1A
    8015l24s

    If at all possible, any chance you could take a picture of the plugs that go to the rim from the main PCB, when you change the fan?

    Are you sure it is 80, not 70mm? I found a post in this thread saying 70mm. How about thickness, I have not found any reference. Is 20 mm too much, particularly with the buehler being bigger?

    Yes, I will be glad to take and post a picture of the plug when I open the wheel again.

    80x80x15 mm outside dimensions of fan, theres about a 4mm gap between the fan and the buehlers, so maybe a 20mm thick fan could squeeze in there, but it would be VERY tight. 8015L24S ND1 is the number on the fan

    Thank you 88x80x15 it will be.
    I should receive this next week or the following, I will send a picture when I am about to change the fan.

    Two convenience issues:
    Standard CSL Elite Wheel
    1. The shifter pedals are pretty far away for my fingers. Any ideas on how to mod that?
    2. The buttons are all unreachable in my driving position. Are there any mod ideas for that?

    One solution for the standard Brake Pedal:
    I put a screwdriver bit right in the middle of the foam bumper thing. Has exactly the required length, about 3cm.
    Now I have a perfect hard stop at the end. No more calibration problems.

    Hi esteemed Fanatec gurus, I just got my Clubsport Wheel Base (ie v1) on ebay and all was working with my PC until I bolted it down to my desk without realising it should have a 90 degree USB B cable. So the USB cable was forced upwards hard into the socket and now the wheel base is no longer recognised when I connect it to the PC.
    I've checked the cable by connecting my Fanatec pedals to my PC with it and they are recognised in device manager immediately. I've tested with my multimeter that all 4 pins at the USB A end of the cable are connecting to the soldered pins on the PCB under the USB B socket on the wheel base correctly and none is shorted to any other (and pin 4 is grounded to the cable shield) so I don't think the USB B socket is broken. Am I looking at a replacement PCB or is there anything else I can try? The wheel base powers on and spins for calibration, the fan runs and the rim seems to be connected and powered ok.

    Even though you have continuity to the pins sticking through the pcb, the solder joints connecting the pins to the pcb could be broken or the traces in the board adjacent could be broken (which wouldn't show on your test). Try following a trace from the pins to the next location and test each from there to see if you still have continuity. Hopefully it's just the solder joints which reheating and reflowing the solder could fix.
    Good luck.

    Hi all, hoping someone can help. I've been lurking through the thread and couldn't find an answer.

    I have a Fanatec GT3RS wheel with what seems to be a broken zero/calibration sensor and some other issues. The wheel turns all the way right, then all the way left and stays there. I can manually take hold of it and pull it back, at which point it will loosen and I can manually set the centre using the buttons.

    However, the fun doesn't stop there. If I boot up AC and take a few laps, my first 1-2 laps the wheel will lose its centre, usually mid-turn or if there is an impact. I will reset the centre again. The weird thing is, after that it will run for hours with no problem. It's also now permanently rotated an extra 90 degrees clockwise... ie. my right 'stop' is 540 degrees right of centre, the left stop is 360 degrees left of centre.

    I've tried replacing the code wheel sensor, cleaning the inside with an air duster to no avail. Tried different firmware versions with similar behaviour - on 681 it will display '888' on bootup, on 756 it displays nothing. Also tried playing with the settings, turning everything off, turning sensitivity all the way down, all the way up to no avail.

    Any ideas?

    Try a new motor if you can find one. That will get you both the encoder wheel and sensor replaced. Sounds like you have a problem with either one or the other. There is a small possibly that it could be a wire connection issue too, so at least try unplugging and reconnecting any connections from the sensor to the main pcb.

    Here is what I got from Google Translate:

    "Help. Hi how are you? I would like to know about fanatec pulley measurement and also motor pulley measurement. Could you indicate which engine for ffb.com that measures I will make the pulley agadeco if you can help me"

    I am not exactly sure what you're asking for but would be happy to help if I can. Do you just need dimensions of the motor pulleys?

    Hello!!
    My csl elite ps4 DRIVER LASTES 373
    AND raccomanded Fanatec settings {GT SPORT,.DIRT RALLY 2.0) . Everything was perfect till few days ago, while I was driving normally the wheel suddenly lost power in the forcefeedback in corners, low vibrate on straights, and when in corners seemed like the belts jerked. I also noticed that it seems not to have the smooth and quite operation then before. When I turn the wheel I hear and feel a gear/belt rotation sound wich I don't remember before.

    I also tried to reinstall and update everything but with no luck.
    I TRY 10 different drivers but not good. Afzer updating and trying different drivers wheel feel always the same. Wheel feel really hard and pulling amd jave sone fast moves. I dont have feel too road and car doesnt hsve grip. Itss impossible to race..
    ANY SOLUTION WOULD BE FINE

    Hey guys. Great thread.

    Wondered if you can help - I replaced the bearings and belts on my V1 CSW today, but unfortunatley I fecked up the silver reducer pulley. Pressing in the new bearing and POP the centre cracked and bent. :(

    Does anyone have a spare I can buy? The big silver one, on the left hand side of the unit when looking from the front.

    Cheers!
