    Lack of videos for shimano twist shifters...

    I was searching YouTube for videos on how to change a cable on the shimano twist shifter and was surprised to find none. All sorts of videos on the sram twist shifters....but none that I can find for the Nexus ReVoo shifter.
    I have the manual, but those videos always help. Does anyone know of one? I am just replacing a bad shifter and need to know how to replace the unit. Take off the cable at the hub and then pop apart the cover on the shifter and install that end first, and then re-install the cable on the hub. I think that's right?

    Thanks and sorry for the nube question...

    If the old one is going in the bin anyway you can just pull it apart to find out where the opening is?

    Remove the small screws for the cover plate. Cable is underneath.

    I'd try to figure out how to open it anyway so that you know what to do the next time.
