Clubsport 1.5 Shifter - Metalic sound in gears 3 & 4

edited January 2023 in Fanatec Other


I just got the Clubsport 1.5 Shifter, and I'm noticing an annoying noise between gears 3 and 4 toward neutral. It is a kind of metallic "Click", which does not occur in any other combination of gears. In sequential mode, the sound is even more pronounced.

Is my unit faulty? Should I contact Fanatec?

I have attached a link to dropbox with a video of the problem, although it is not as noticeable as in person.

I will appreciate any help, Regards!


I have found other examples on the net, with the same problem:


  • I have the same sound coming from gears 3 and 4. The shifter works fine so I would not say it's broken, although this sound is a little bit annoying.

    I have exactly the same problem and it bothers me too. That's why I opened the shifter and put O-rings in the places where it could be damped. 

    Once between the shift lever and the spring.

    Once under the tensioning screw I put a small one in.

    Under the shift fin plate which is fixed with 3 screws.

    Then I damped the round tension spring for moving from left to right by placing a piece of rubber from a ballpoint pen on the stop surface. 

    It has gotten better, but the metallic noise between 3 and 4 is extremely annoying and I am looking for the reason.
