I f**ked the cable of the throttle on the "CSL Elite Pedals"
Before anyone gives me a bad mark on being careless and stupid, remember this is the first Fanatec product(CSL Elite F1 SET) I have ever owned in my whole life and I myself am a passionate lover for sim racing.
So yesterday I wanted to change the positions of the pedals to avoid the platform moving sideways. Sadly as I was mounting back the throttle, I accidentally placed the darring cable between the pedal unit and the platform and the whole cable has now been sliced. I tried to send Fanatec a support request with photos of what the issue looks like. I am so worried of how long it can take to get a response, if I can get only a new piece of throttle and Fanatec accepts that while being under warrenty.
Have you had this experience? If you had, how did you resolve it? Please send me a story of what happened. I love this wheel so much but I have been in deep depression after this incident. The wheel itself works perfectly fine and I have no problems with it but cant play it without a throttle. I have never ever thought even to this day that this cable can easily get cut off...
Just reconnect it until you can get a replacement. You could solder the wires or if that is not in your skill set just wind each wire together and tape them up. That would get you racing again. You'll need to strip a little insulation of each end.
I dont have a solder but tried to duct tape it, nothing worked so might as well try getting a replacement if only I can get one but thanks for the help.
Buy the LC brake and take the old brake as throttle 😉
140€ for that doesnt sound worthy...
From the photos it looks like coaxial cable; there are two separate wires one inside the other. You need to join these separately - inner to inner and outer to outer. You need to makes sure the inner cannot touch the outer. It will work.
