Well, contacted the Music Group and unfortunately the rep I got on the phone said they dont have any pdf or instruction sheets on how to repair of the faders... :O/
Looks like I'm going in blind! :)

The laymen's explanation that I got was your line up the sprocket/pulley that drive the belt, and use some type of adhesive to keep them from sliding on the shaft.

Pics would be awesome, won't be long before a large number of X32s are no longer under warranty.

Yeah, I'll definitely take pictures during the R&R and possibly a how-to video for others. I'm sure it would come in handy at some point for someone.  ;)

What you need is : Service Directive_BEHRINGER X32 Fader.pdf
Which goes into the matter in minute detail
(PDF attachments are not permissable here and even if they were I wouldn't want Uli's fleet of black (imatation) helicopters chasing me).

Perhaps it's a secret document since their own service(?) rep didn't know about it. Actually it happens sometimes with large companies that the left hand doesn't know what the right hand is doing.

You can find the pdf here. A good look at just how cheaply made the faders are.

That last picture showing the belt slipped under the gear surprises me.  It wouldn't take much intelligence to design a gear with a flange on both sides to stop that happening.

While we can claim intelligence from the benefit of hindsight, this may not be so simple. Experience from building sh__ loads of these will indicate to them how to refine the design if there are any obvious flaws.

Having the belt where it somewhat easily comes off of the gear may be, by design, to prevent worse damage if the fader "interrupted" while moving. Better that the belt comes off rather than breaking or striping out.
