I have an anoying problem with my sram XX brake lever. The brake lever release mechanism activates itself on the front brake lever when I hit a bump at normal speed. Like if it was too sensitive. The rear one is ok. The thing that make it weird is it doesnt act up like this 100% of the time. But when it does its anoting and dangerous.
It was all good on my last ride, but my brakes were making a horrible squeaking noise so I cleaned my rotors with alcool and I recentered my brakes. Then The next ride the problem appears.
Can anyone point out the possible cause and a solution to fix this?
at page 41, they show an exploded view of the brake lever, can anyone tell what part it is in the document. I think its the (F) part but not sure.
thank for any help, I want to ride my MTB as soon as possible without that anoying problem
page 27 in this spare parts catalogue. Do I need to order the whole number 2 package?
I dont know what year my XX brake are. They are the non world cup version, carbon lever and grey body.
help is much appreciated
It's typically like $15-20 retail.
here's the shot: these are probably part numbers on the pachage. hope it helps.
I wish I could make sure what year my brakes are, I have no idea. They look like these:

Also you better replace it earlier than later. Mine master cilinder started leaking in about 2-3 month time from the moment the click "issue" started to happen. Luckily not in the race.
My mecanic solved the problem. Dismounting the brake lever was quite a hassle and I suggest you really buy the special puller tool. My mecanic managed to build a homemade puller!
When removing a small part in the lever, the oil splashed out. The brake needs a blees after changing the parts. I thought it was a job I could do but im glad I went to my lbs.
The right parts are the whole no 5 in the above sram part document. They sre 35$ retail
