my thumb trigger on my Left Shifting/brake lever started sticking. I dissembled it to regress every thing, and now I'm trying to assemble everything, but things aren't working quite right. I have a feeling I'm putting something in the wrong place. I've been trying to find some schematics or a exploded parts pic, but I'm having no luck. Dose any one know where i could find one anything? I just need to see the correct order of reassembly.
Yeah, I'm having a hard time getting the lever return spring set myself. I'm scouring bike shops to see if i can get a Return Spring Installing pin. I feel like this would help a lot, just having trouble trying to locate one
With the lever body upside down, mounted on the bike or held in a vise (between your knees in a pinch), place the plastic bushes and hook the spring onto the pivot bracket of the lever.
Holding the lever on an angle maybe 30° or so more open than it sits, insert it into place, closing the angle as you push the end of the spring against the lever body. It shouldn't be too difficult if you get the angles right.
Keep the lever in place while you slide a screwdriver or something through the pivot as a placeholder for the pivot pin, which can be a bit of a PITA to insert all the way... swearing helps a bit.
