I have a pair of 8-speed indexed shifters, well-used. I moved the selector to friction mode, and it felt like something snapped inside, and now the selector moves freely with very little resistance, and it moves all the way around.
This means that the shifters are stuck in friction.
I took them off the mounts, and it looks like the parts are press-fit into the lever or something like that. I can't figure out how to get them apart.
Obviously the selector was moving something inside of the shifters, if I can find that thing and move it back into place, I should be able to get indexing back.
Does anyone know how to get at the mechanism inside?
