You can also take them apart, clean them, and regrease them. I haven't done this with Tiagra, but i did it with my 600 8 speed ones. There were a few hidden screws and then the whole ratchet mechanism came out and i cleaned and greased all of the little pawls and such. If you do this do it somewhere where you aren't going to loose anything if you drop it or it pops out though. I dropped a piece on the floor and it went under a counter and i thought i wasn't going to find it and my shifters were trash.
