    Shoot your shifters full of WD40, it may help.

    ^ Yep. Aside from that, they're not rebuildable but there was someone on this forum who claimed he did it.

    I assume the vast majority are going to give the impossible vote. Seems reasonable though to see if there are ANY to the contrary since accepting the majority vote simply means trashing a 80% functional shifter.

    This isn't a vote on an opinion, it's a statement of physical reality supported by the fact the manufacturer (Shimano) provides NO repair parts to the buying public or their dealers.

    Go ahead and take it apart and let us know what you find. There is one contrary vote that has been posted on this forum but with no details or other evidence. Have at it.

    It's that 20% that gets ya.

    You might consider installing Ultegra or Dura-Ace barend shifters. I did myself to avoid the exact predicament you're in and they work great.
