This is probably not the best place to ask such a question, but I've had my wheel for exactly 13 months starting tomorrow. I've put in well over 2,000 hours on the wheel(based on my playtime in various driving games that I own on Steam/Privately). At this point, the leather on top is now pretty smooth and doesn't feel as rough as when it was new. The shifter boot looks like it has seen its' fair days of use(not ripped though). However, those are not my issue. My question is about the noise it makes now after those 2,000 hours. Calibration is a lot louder than it was new. A friend of mine that got his wheel almost 2 days after mine, with roughly a similar amount of hours has less noise than me during calibration. When crashing in a game, say Assetto Corsa or Live for Speed, the wheel freaks out. "duh duh dhudhudhudhudhudu duh". I have to forcefully grab it and turn away from the wall(or reset car position) or it'll keep doing it. Now for the question: Is the above issues caused by the gears on force feedback motors getting worn? If so, what are my options for it? What voids the warranty? As for now, I've taken apart both the pedals and shifter(my reverse wouldn't work sometimes, but I fixed that when I cleaned out the inside of the shifter). My emblem on the wheel itself has come off(I tried mounting a swivel phone mount to it and the emblem got pulled off) but I haven't taken anything else off of the wheel. No disassembly yet. Thank you for your time, Truck Sim community. Video of the sound. The last 30 seconds is at worst.
