Campagnolo Ergopower shifters are known for their durability, shifting accuracy and ease of maintenance, and they are preferred by many professional cyclists over Shimano and SRAM shifters. Campagnolo is also known for its exceptional customer service and warranty program, so when something does go wrong, the company will often replace the shifters. Make the replacement process go smoothly and easily by removing your own shifters to be warrantied.

Things you need

- Cable cutters
Remove the bar tape from both sides of your handlebars. The Ergo shifters will not come off with the bar tape in place. Also remove any bar ends of plugs that may get in the way.
Loosen the cable stop bolt on the front derailer, front brake, rear derailer and rear brake. Remove any cable ends using cable cutters so that the cables may slide through the housing.
Peel back the rubber "hoods" that cover the shifters. Locate on the outside of each shifter the handlebar clamp bolt. Loosen the bolts with a 4mm hex wrench.
Lightly slide the shifters toward the bottom of the handlebars. Any cables attached to the shifters will slide out of the housing as you remove the shifters.
Wind the loose cables into a ring or tie them together to keep them out of the way.
