mine was getting really sloppy.. i kept avoiding it but finally settled down with the few instructions from the campyonly web site and i printed out their diagram...ive found that their instructions and diagram will only lead you to hours of fiddling and what you need is the excerpt from the book zinn and the art of bicycle maintenance...after finding it on the web it took about an hour and around 20 bucks in parts to get it perfect...the parts you can get from the campyonly site but dont dare try to do it with their instructions....as far as the campy vs shimano debate, the campy are considered much easier to fix...it'll still test your small motor skills though...great if you like to tinker..make sure you check for cracks in the farthest down piece, that or the g springs are likely the problem..

What exactly inside the levers gets replaced that matters? Thanks.

often the tiny so called "g" springs break which cost about 4 bucks each (there are two)... the "g" spring holder cracks too sometimes, this happend to me, its a bit more expensive at about 15 dollars...there are one (a washer) or maybe two other parts in there that i think potentially break...it all comes down to cogs, springs and washers, nothing too complex, really amazing in its simplicity...its worth doing yourself..
