Default How to remove Saitek X52/X52 Pro Throttle Detents

Here is a small picture tutorial on how to remove the Throttle Detents on the Saitek X52/X52 Pro.

I found a thread on this but I thought I would post another with pics in case someone needed a visual in order to do it. This is very easy to do only requires a small Phillips screwdriver.

I have found this helps very much for refueling and just all around throttle movement.

Have Fun!

Could someone assist with the X52 Throttle detent mod? I removed the lug and put the throttle back together (it was pretty hard to put it together, it seemed as if the throttle doesn't really fit well..)
but now instead of the two bumps at the bottom and top of the throttle that it had because of the lug, now there is a bump exactly at the center. It's not as bad as the original bumps, but it's still distracting.

Anyone run into this issue before?

Please let me understand; There are two sets on %20 and %75 on throttle. Do you mean that by saying "detent"?

If so I plan to do that. If I do it, I'll tell it with detailed photos.

Am very tempted to do this as I mostly fly helicopters and the indent is mega annoying, but don't want to lose my warranty.
