    Low gear problem on Brompton (3 speed hub)

    I cannot select low gear on my Brompton any more! I have spent much time adjusting the tightness of the gear cable without any success. Any other simple checks I can do? Or do I need a new hub? Thanks.

    2nd properly adjusted?

    To eliminate Lever issues, how is it By pulling the indicator chain directly?

    If I pull the indicator chain directly I still don't seem to be able to engage the lowest gear

    Could be the low gear pawl.. broken spring perhaps. fortunately every part of Aw3 hubs is sold.

    hub shell comes apart, big spline .. behind the cog.
