Creaking CSL elite base

Hello guy's.

Does anyone else have an issue with the csl elite base creaking under load? Mine has developed a very weird noise when when under load. It's only a few months old.

I have just emailed Fanatec to see if they have any idea but just thought I'd see if anyone else has an issue?

It sound's like it could be the rubber belt but it's a bit worrying.

Cheers for any help 😊


  • The CSL’s I have seen where all more “noise” than a CSW for comparison. It mainly has to do with the materials used on the inside, where a CSW is mostly metal the CSL has a lot of plastic parts in it (and that doesn’t have to be bad... I know people who own a plastic G29 for years and still are way faster then I am with my DD2).

    Probably support is going to ask you if you can record a video of it so I would suggest doing that first and as long as everything functions properly just use it.

    Oh and one suggestion, check if the base is still properly attached to your rig (or desk)
