Replacing Upper Rotator Knob For Nodal Ninja Ultimate M1



There have been reported cases where the knob on the upper rotator has broken and rotates freely. This is an apparent flaw in design and manufacturing. Fanotec decided to replace all the knobs in that batch. Follow the procedure to replace the knob and add a plastic washer to make the knob operate more smoothly.

Step 2A: Removing a Broken Knob


If the knob breaks apart from its metal core, it will rotate freely. The knob cannot be removed without a special tool. Contact your reseller to get the tool required.
