G29 Mod questions

6 posts in this topic

Hey guys,

first-time poster here, and I am looking to mod my G29 steering wheel with a real steering wheel and move all of the buttons to a button box. I am thinking that the red rotary dial on the G29 is a rotary encoder and is buttons 22 and 23. Can anyone confirm my assumption on this? And if that is correct does anyone have any information on what rotary encoder would be required to replace it and a wiring diagram for the board, as I cannot find any online? 

thanks for your time.

I know this is an old post but there is a guy on YouTube by the name of amstudio that has used an aftermarket rim with a button plate and does a tutorial. He also has done many other videos on mods to his G29. You should ask him, hope this has helped.

Here is the video

Thanks Mestizo69,

I follow amstudio on YouTube and he has some great videos and ideas, although I would like to see some more detail in the description of where he gets some of his materials he uses for his projects. I have already pulled apart my G29 to fit a deep dish wheel on it and now that I have had a look at the circuit board I see which buttons will be easy to "move" and which ones aren't. I will need to do some closer inspections and testing to see if I can figure out if that button can be moved. I will update my findings for those who may be curious.

I am invested into the G27, I have done so many mods it's not even a G27 anymore. I used the handbrake mod from amstudio but I soldered into the shifter PCB circle button connected to a switch which is activated by the lever of the handbrake. I would like to see how you evolve your G29 into something great.

Hello again,  I was wondering if you had done any mods to your wheel? Here is a recent video of my MODS on the Logitech G27 and Driving Force Pro that would apply to your G29.
