In conclusion, I have to RMA my wheel!
After one year, logitech is still putting G27 with this issue, on the market? Very bad!

rodavo? What do i need to remove to get access to the shaft and make the hot glue thing? This can be done removing the wheel and the pcb only or something more is needed? I have removed the wheel and the pcb previous from the G25 but im not brave enought to remove anything else. Why Logitech havent released a new revision of the G27 with this fix? I believe they are losing so much money replacing all the defective wheels. Actually i have a working G25 and i want to buy the G27 because its new features but i really dont want to spend all the money and stay with a defective product. Its really hard to explaing the upgrade to the wife this way.

You basically need to pull the whole wheel apart (not just the wheel and wheel pcb) to get to the force feedback motor (the one with the plastic cover on the end of it) inside the main case of the wheel. Its a little bit tricky but there are a few tutorials on the net that take you step by step through disassembling a G25 wheel (which is identical).

i bought my G27 together with a Playseat Evolution about 1 month ago.
During this time i played about 3 hours maximum and was waiting for F1 2010 to come out for the PS3.
Now that its out i played about 2 hours yesterday and suddenly i was facing exactly the same issue as you guys have...
At the beginning replugin the USB fixxed it for a few minutes, but now even this is not fixing the issue.
It calibrates but then stands about 10° to the left or to the right.
If you start playing with this it goes even worse....
I opened a ticket at the customer support in Germany... hope they will replace it soon.
Btw, where do i find the Serial Number of the Wheel? I can only find the M/N and P/N number at the back of the wheel
Is there any good alternative to the G27 (but not the G25) ?
I was waiting so long for F1 2010 and now i cannot play it because of this issue..... i'm really disappointed.

You will find that the wheel will go out of calibration only when you turn very quickly against the resistance of the force feedback motors. This is when the optical sensor spins on the motor shaft and loses its position. This is why sometimes you will be able to play for a long time without a problem and other times it will go out of calibration straight away. Either get a new wheel from Logitech under warranty or pull it apart and fix it like I explained in the photo in this thread.

I connected my G27 to my Laptop now (Win7 x64) to test it there.
I installed the Logitech Gaming Profiler and tested the Windows Gaming Controller function.
I can press all the buttons without any problems, but steering is not recognized....
Even if i replugin the USB and it starts calibrating it does not end up in the middle but first at the END of the left side, and then at the END of the right side.
Tried it in a few games and steering is also not working there, only the buttons are fine....

Hi I don't know if you replied to my post above but you're wrong in the terms of that I could just start the pc, launch the profiler and then start for example DiRT and do nothing with the wheel and the car will just go to the right, but as I stated in my post I just paus the game turn the wheel all the way to the left and then to the right and the problem will not occur any more for that session regardless how fast I turn the wheel so I figure that there is something else going on here.
Maybe your solution does work but in my case I have no more trouble with the wheel, so in my case I find it very satisfying to just do as I described instead of messing with the hardware even though I would not have any problems with doing so if I would choose to do so but then again it is up to everyone to decide how they would approach this "problem"
as for everyone else I would say if you feel that the games and their cars are hard to drive just follow my instructions in doc I've linked to and you should probably have a very nice experience, I'v now won every race in the career in DiRT and GRID, and thats without any driving assistans and on serious to extreme mode and pro am, and in RBR I managed to beat the world records in several races so I'm figuring that there are more involved than just the optical sensor going out of aligment.
Have a nice day and race on

Everyone has tried your description. Different computers were tried, even PS3's.
Your solution is not for this topic. You have some other problem. Start a new thread because this is a hardware problem, not software.
