that more like the wheel issue then the game it not a bug it's a mechanical fault. t150, TMX and g29 do the same thing and only last 1 year and 5 months if your lucky to get two. im having to get the st-xw wheelbase because of it, and if the wheel goes you can buy another one, or repair it.

Logitech wheels are quite reliable kit, but any assembled or manufactured item can suffer from assembly defects. Mechanical switches can fail prematurely as they have a stated MTBF (mean time before failure, usually measured in clicks). Also, dirt can work into the mechanisms causing intermittent issues.

Take a look on YT there are plenty of teardowns. Opening your wheel invalidates warranty if certain things are removed, so try your reseller as a first point of contact.

Hi 

Nope, as I said, it works fine in the game menu, just when you are driving upshift dont work suddenly. I tried to take out the usb and in again..then the game crashed, but after restart it worked.

It as @steviejay69 ^ . about the warranty, it only as long you have the DoP (Day of Purchase) either by email or the receipt. if you dont have one, its no big deal, the dealership E.G. Currys or Argos. Will have a copy of your purchase(s) which you can call for a copy. 

Just make sure to have proof of ID, like;

  • a debit card,
  • address to whom the purchaser lives,
  • and your name starting with Mr/Mrs/Mis/Miss with firstname, middlename and lastname.

Plus be nice to the person on the phone, having a argument actually doesn't get nowhere.
