Hi there, I have a sticking XLC that doesn't want to move on instruction from the throttle button. I've opened up the back to have a look, and one side moves ok with slight pressure from my finger, the other one doesn't. Does anyone know if there is some kind of lubricant i can use to get the flipper moving( WD40?). The flipper will move with some heavy pressure but of course it should move freely. Thanks in advance.

Cheers Nick

Hi there,

Riko, you might as well be talking chinese, i've no clue what you are saying! Is there a picture somewhere of said "bent metal thing". It might help a thicko like me!

hi Nick
track is coming along nicely thanks. If you need a bottle of the inox just pm as i have a spare.

Just remove the plastic cover from the xlc and all will become apparent,they are very easy to work on..

Just updated the thread today,have a look in tracks and scenery,it's called Eastlands park.

I too have the same problem, taken off the back of the XLC and confused as what I'm looking for. Any pictures we can see what your talking about?

after you pull the back panel off the XLC you will see a silver round stud that runs into the flipper - remove that and gve the hole it passes through a clean. You may wish to find a drill bit the exact size and use that to clean the hole (not in a drill just by hand) then clean all the grooves in the top of the track. When you put it all back together make sure you do it with as little presure as possible. When I did this it worked fine again. Also check the track is flat as if the end of the flipper is dragging that can also make it bind up

Tried to remove the silver stud that runs into the flipper and can't seem to get it out and I wasn't going to push it anymore because I was damaging the plastic. What did you use to get it out?
