I have a 2008 Digtal tour 24v and I can't keep the directional arrow accurate. Removed the top plate, all gears are in place and in good shape. Nothing appears to be out of alignment. Any suggestions?
Thanks

If the shaft is bent they will do that. The lower shaft goes to the top with that gear on it.

Mine has been like that for years. I don't even look at it anymore. I know what direction I'm going just by my foot movement! Foot pressing down going to the right, heel pushed down going to the left!

Common MG problem. The plastic gears don't mesh tight enough.

the plastic gear may have stripped teeth and not engaging.
