    Hello everybody, is this sound normal for the g29?
    When i recorded this my computer was off so no force feeback sound, and turned the wheel with my hand.
    And the wheel sounds ALOOT louder but the same in real life, just a bad mic here

    Here you go
    And sometimes during hard turning left it starts squeaking, but it kinda comes and goes so need big deal of that.
    And did u hear the sound?
    Had the wheel for about 1-2 months now

    That is the sound of death. Grinding gears of the past. :D

    Sounds normal. What you hear is just the grinding plasic gears. Turn faster it will become louder and higher pitch. That bang sound is when the wheel reach end of rotation limit. Squiking sound comes from motor inside when under heavy load.

    Okay Ring Logitech about the problem and then they may say, take your Receipt and the wheel to the store were you brought it from because it is still under warranty.
