Campagnolo Centaur Ergo Lever 2008

When using the thumb change to change to a smaller sprocket, the lever on one particular shift jumps down 2 sprockets. I have noticed the video on You Tube (Record one) to take the unit apart for overhaul, but am wondering whether the shifter is beyond repair.

    You can service Ergos quite easily, but is a bit of a fiddle - alternatively the likes of Mercian Cycles can do it for you. I'd try dousing the internals with some GT85/WD40 just in case there's some debris lodged in there that's causing the mis-shift.
    Make mine an Italian, with Campagnolo on the side..
  • Sounds like a gear service at your LBS is required. This is not the usual failure of this lever. An Ergo service would involve new parts but I feel nothing is worn.

    Get it to you LBS ASAP and have them tune it up

    Many thanks for the replies - I did try WD40 but no luck - initially, I'll try to take it to bits myself. Fortunately, the video shows how to put it back together again. If no good, I'll use one of the recommended repairers.
  • Shifter is most likely fine. Take bike to a Bike shop and have them look it over
