Campag ergo lever servicing

When pressing the thumb shift on my Campag Centaur QS 10sp 2008 levers the change has become 'sloppy' and therefore is probably in need of a service. Firstly is this a job I could do myself? I do all my own bike maintenance but thought maybe this is a job for the experts as I once took a lock apart and when I removed the plate from the front bits flew everywhere!! If i could do it myself does anyone know which bits i would need to order and where from?

If its a job for the experts does anyone have any recommendations please.

    There are some You Tube videos of how to do it. I have taken them apart and they are simple enough. Just make sure you note how each part goes together, and in what sequence/ way round washers etc go as you dismantle the lever. A hook tool (or small screwdriver with a notch ground into it will be needed to unhook/ re-hook the spring.

    The Campagnolo site has technical data sheets for each model and they show serviceable part numbers for kits etc.

    Hope this helps.

    Or get Jeff at Mercian in Derby to do it.

    Proper old boy craftsman, I imagine rows of jam jars full of bits and bobs lining his workbench every time I speak to him! He does not do full weeks though.

    @Coach H - thanks, I did try Mercian from a recommendation on a previous thread and he emailed to say that they do not service 2008 QS levers. I have downloaded the relevant info from the Campag website, ordered a hook tool and will set to work next week.

    i've serviced a few and was fully prepared for it to be a nightmare job but was in fact very easy.
    There are so many videos and step by step guides to help you and if it all goes wrong put it in a bag and send it to mercian!
    normally the G spring that needs replacing
