Replacing Warthog buttons and switches

Post by (B/229) evilivan on Sat 14 Jan 2017 - 3:42

Any had any experience replacing buttons on the Warthog? My #2 button has gone on the joystick:

Terrible picture, but I think you can see enough. I don't want to cock anything up replacing it (assuming TM will supply me the spare...) so previous experience appreciated Smile

I also need to replace the pinkie switch on my throttle, but that looks more straightforward.

Cheers

Sorry mate, never touched the JS but have had the Throttle in total bits experimenting and replacing the main PCB.

TM support for me has been 100%+, maybe give them a shout and they will hopefully suggest an assembly that will fix the issue and be relatively user friendly in fitting.

Not too expensive on parts...

Ive had to replace that button before, and its not a big deal. When you order the button, TM will send you a pdf file on how to replace the button. Its basically just cut a zip tie off here and pull the plug for that one button. Its a 2 prong wire that you would commonly see like a chassis fan in your computer on the mobo. Easy stuff to replace. Took me all of 10 minutes. Get yourself some allen wrenches in metric and you'll be ok.
