Trying to do this mod right now, anyone know how to get to the circuit board at this point? I don't want to break anything, am I just supposed to pry it off?





EDIT: Figured it out, you need to pop out the pin that it rotates on. Will post more pictures when I'm done.

Lci wheel into pre lci 07' e9x
Finally got this to work via rewire (paddles) & altering MF button wires into different arrangement. Works perfectly without fault! Massive improvement over previous SSG wheel! Thanks to all you people posting!!

I got mine from Nexon and had them do the rewiring. They still didn't work the first time I got them. I e-mailed them and they sent me a couple pictures showing me how to swap the ground pins. Once i did that they worked just fine.

The rewiring is of course more than moving the ground wire pins, but depending on your year and model, the location of the ground pins might be different. It took me 10 minutes to make the adjustment and they are now perfect! Love the updated look, and I'm in the Left side Down, Right side Up shifting crowd!

It's the pin it pivots on. It's a plastic pin that tapers from one side to the next. Push on it from the smaller diameter side and it will pop right out. If you still need help let me know.
