Have a 10spd sram force rear shifter that I suspect is damaged as it only indexes 9 times. Obviously you can see the ratchet mechanism from where the cable port is. Has anyone had any luck disassembling the shifter? Next step is to replace shifter but thought if it is fixable it'd be worth a shot.

Unless I'm missing something, in a 10 speed system, you index 9 times to go from gear 1 to gear 10. Sounds like it's working as intended?

not that difficult. pop off the hood, use a small screwdriver to remove the screws on the plastic cover on the side, and your internals are exposed. further have a look at the sram shifters exploded view here: http://www.universalcycles.com/shopping ... p?id=27535

It IS fixable but you need some pretty delicate fingers to do it. and not all parts are available.
10 speed shifters can be bought for peanuts on the 2nd hand marlket right now, may be better to go down that route.

@kkibbler, yep thanks for spotting the typo there - shifter indexes 8 times, so have 9 useable gears atm.

@davidalone, thanks I was hunting for a diagram like that, will have a go with my not-so-delicate fingers ;)

I have had that happen on a Force shifter. I solved the issue by spraying a generous amount of degreaser into the mechanism and applied a new coat of grease. Worked without problems for a further year or two and have since sold it.
