I would like to hear from others who did this, how difficult it was to rebuild an Ergopower. Are the instructions on Campyonly clear enough or are there tricky things to expect?

It's not easy- there's a reason shops charge $40-$75 for the service. The instructions are plenty clear, but an awful lot of the procedures fall into the "easier said than done" category.

I rebuilt my r/h Ergopower back in December, with parts/info I obtained from Branfordbike, and Campyonly.It took me 40 minutes to disaasemble,clean/regrease, and reassemble. The biggest issue I had was with maintaining tension on the internal parts while reassembling(you'll know what I mean when you're at this stage!!!). If you follow the instructions in the tech manual(order it,it will make things a heck of alot simpler!) you shouldn't have too many problems.

Hi Bill,

Thanks for your answer! I ordered a new Ergopower and derailleur for my bike and I will repair the old one in the mean time, so I'll be able to use it on 1 of my 2 other racing bikes when needed.

I'll try to get hold of a copy of the manual. So the jpg image on the CampyOnly page isn't good enough to start rebuilding?

Greets, Pina

Hello Pina,
The best place to get the Campy Ergopower manual that I know of is, they also have spare parts neede for rebuilding. Also check out the campagnolo website, goto the technical documents section for the particular Ergopower that you have. The tech manual has an exploded diagram of the Ergopower, that shows you in what order the parts go into the shifter body.
