Introduzione

If the C-Clamps on your Logitech G27 break, you will need to replace them before using the steering wheel again. This is a little bit of a pain to do, because the C-Clamps are fully inside the device case. To replace them, you will just need to remove a few screws.

  1. Remove the six gray 25mm hex screws with a 4mm allen wrench.
    • Remove the six gray 25mm hex screws with a 4mm allen wrench.

    • Watch out when you lift the wheel up, as there are fragile wires connected to the bottom side.

    • Carefully lift up the wheel, but do not disconnect it from the rest of the device.

  2. Carefully lift the wheel off of the hub, exposing the 2 shifter paddle wires and PCB board.
    • Carefully lift the wheel off of the hub, exposing the 2 shifter paddle wires and PCB board.

  3. Remove the two 7.5 mm silver screws holding the green PCB board in the wheel with a Phillips #1 screwdriver.
    • Remove the two 7.5 mm silver screws holding the green PCB board in the wheel with a Phillips #1 screwdriver.

  4. Carefully remove the PCB board from the wheel hub.
    • Carefully remove the PCB board from the wheel hub.

  5. Carefully pinch and unplug the large 7-pin connector under the PCB board.
    • Carefully pinch and unplug the large 7-pin connector under the PCB board.

    • Be careful when unplugging this adapter, try not to pull on the wires to avoid damaging them. Instead, wiggle around the plastic connector while pulling on it to loosen it.

    These screws refused to go all the way back in for me, and one of them stripped completely. If this happens to you, you can get replacement screws that are shorter here - https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01MFA...

    This works for the G27, not sure about the G25 or any other wheels.

    Obviously the screws being shorter means the wheel isn't as strongly attached to the base in this direction, so if you have to do this remember not to put unnecessary stress on these screws by pulling the wheel straight off the base.

    @alexdinpoik I’ve had the same problem when the 7 pin connectors blue and green cables broke off. First, only the blue one was broken which only took the led indicators gradual increase but all buttons were working then when i tried to plug in back, the green one broke off leading to none of the buttons working but the led indicators just working. Now i’ll try to fix it with iron soldering.

    Loosen the desk clamps before removing the housing, otherwise you risk breaking something. The housing should come off without having to use any force whatsoever.

  10. Remove the four 7.3mm silver screws attaching the green PCB board to the motor housing with a Phillips #1 screwdriver.
    • Remove the four 7.3mm silver screws attaching the green PCB board to the motor housing with a Phillips #1 screwdriver.

    I’d do steps 9 and 10 in reverse order, the connectors are much easier to unplug while the board is secured in place.

  11. Unplug the three plastic connectors on the left side of the PCB board.
    • Unplug the three plastic connectors on the left side of the PCB board.

    • Unplug the two plastic connectors on the top of the PCB board.

    • Unplug the three plastic connectors on the right side of the PCB board.

    • Pulling the plastic connectors requires a lot of force, but be careful and don't pull directly on the wires. Try to wedge or push the male side of the connector out.

    • If you need some extra leverage when removing these connectors, try using a plastic opening tool to pry off the connectors.

    • Removing these connectors allows easier access to the four screws attaching the PCB board mount to the motor housing.

    Some of the connectors have locks on them, I would recommend this as a two person job.

Where would I buy the replacement C-Clamps from because one of mine are broken and I need to install a new one.

Mumin Mazhar - Replica

Look for it at eBay.

Eduardo -

I also need to find a place to buy replacement C-clamps from

hockeyjockone - Replica

Can you tell me where I can buy these clamps?

kholiwen - Replica

step 9 to 13 not needed ... please confirm

Matt Na - Replica

Agree. Skip from step 8 to 14 directly.

Great tutorial though, cannot make it better! Thanks for putting this together!

Eduardo -

You are absolutely correct. 9-13 are totally unrelated to changing the C-clamp.

Kenny Leach -

Thanks a lot, mate.

Bill Stephenson - Replica

Hi did not need step 9-14 as was able to push the clamp from the bottom of the steering wheel saving time and the risk of damaging cables

Daniel peters - Replica

Improved Logitech Clamps can be found here. Made with stronger material, holds and weights more. Check it out: https://www.ebay.com/itm/263522953969 . Thank you for looking

Mister - Replica

Why would you need to unplug the wires and remove the PCB and other things? Once you removed the housing, you can easily remove the clamps without removing anything else.
