Are replacement inner levers available for DA?(4 posts)

Are replacement inner levers available for DA?DrD

So the inner levers on my shifters (current version of DA levers) are corroding a bit (looks like the clearcoat had some pinholes - now there is filiform corrosion zipping around under there) - obviously not a big deal functionally, but would be nice to replace if I could - I didn't see anything in the loose screws catalog - is there anywhere else to look?

Warranty is three years. Take it back...

Chuck it, buy new ones.
Go buy Campy if you want the "joy" of rebuilding it.
(seriously, get it warrented if you can.)
thanks thus far, but this isn't covered under the warranty!DrD

So this pretty clearly falls under the "Damage or deterioration to the surface finish, aesthetics or appearance of the product" category - it isn't covered by the warranty.

From the Shimano site:

2.Damage occurring during shipment of the products (such claims must be presented directly to the carrier).

3.Damage to products resulting from improper assembly or repair.

4.Damage resulting from causes other than defects in materials and workmanship, including but not limited to lack of technical skill, competence, or experience of the user.

5.Damage or deterioration to the surface finish, aesthetics or appearance of the product.

6.The labor required to remove and/or re-fit and re-adjust the product within the bicycle assembly.

7.Normal wear to the product.
