QR1 (Quick Release) stuck on DD2 shaft and will not release
I installed the QR1 quick release on my Clubsport V2.5x to use for the Podium DD2. It was an extremely tight fit, but I was able to attach it to the DD2. However, now I can't remove it. It seems to be permanently stuck. The spring load works fine. The only way for me to remove the steering wheel is to unscrew the QR1 from the steering wheel. Without damaging the unit, it seems phsyically impossible to pull apart the QR1 from the DD2 shaft. I've looked around online and it seems that this is a known issue. I've ordered some silicon lubricants to see if that might help.
Does anyone have experience with removing this successfully? Happy to post pictures/video if that may help the community.
