changing paddles

Post by Boney » Wed Dec 06, 2017 7:52 am

Hi

just got a set of the billet shift paddles so was wondering is the changing process as simple as remove screw, un plug, plug new one in and tighten back up?

Yes!
I changed mine and it's that simple.
You need a T20 driver and it can be a bit awkward with the wheel in the straight ahead position so turn it through 90 degrees which will give you more room.
Getting the screw back in at the right angle to start it off can be tricky but it's pretty easy to do.

It’s straightforward if you remember that the screws are parallel to the steering column, not to the road.

So once you have turned the wheel a quarter turn left to access the right handle paddle, the end of the screwdriver handle should be lower than the tip (if you can picture that).

I actually found it easier to stand outside the car, as it is a much more natural position to hold the screwdriver and located the Torx screwhead easily.

Once off, it’s very simple to disconnect/reconnnect the paddle electrical connection. Good luck!

Once I had done that with the right hand paddle, I turned the wheel 180 degrees to provide easy access to the left hand one..
