I’m almost positive I have a loose belt... unit it one year old and it only does the clicking/ belt slipping noise when turning left... anyone have any tips on how to fix?
Make a video of the problem and contact Fanatec support if the wheel is still under warranty.
Just ran out of warranty..
Still contact them they may offer you to fix it for a fee.
If not remove the top cover and see from exactly where the noise comes from. Be careful with the wires for the fan and diodes.
Is there a noise when the power is off or only when the wheel is on and there is FFB?
If the latter, turn on the wheel without connecting it to PC or PS4, there must be strong self-centering force and look for where the noise is coming from.
And make a video.
Only when powered on
When the wheel base was new did it make that noise or come up recently?
It only clicks/ pops under load...
Just had the same problem, try greasing the base shaft especially around the rubber o-ring, fixed it for me.
Hey man i have the same thing, did you find a fix? I'm still under warranty but wanted to check if this greasing helped before i send it and it takes forever for the RMA
Was the belt and tensioner. Fanatec took care of it.
Yeah i thought so, mine is still under warranty, i sent them already and will see the next steps. thanks for the response man
I had this same issue and was outside of warranty on my base. It seems this is actually a really quite common issue with these units and is caused by a slightly loose belt. Unfortunately there is no way to adjust the tension on the belt unless you replace the tensioners. I ended 3D printing a single tensioner for mine that was a larger diameter than the original which tightened up the slack. Once I installed it, it instantly fixed this knocking issue and actually cleaned up a lot of noise and vibrations I was feeling in the wheel before. It feels like a whole new wheel! So if you're outside of warranty, don't worry, there is hope.
What is the difference between the diameter of the original and the 3D painted one? :)
