Look Toepiece mount is loose

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

The one piece style toepiece is wobbling where it meets the base plate. Took it off the ski, and there is no access to a bolt underneath, or any other way to tighten or adjust it.  Anyone know about this, and the remedy? Otherwise I'll change out the toepieces and......ask Look?

Never heard of the problem before.   

 

I wouldn't really have expected any bolts underneath -  wouldn't access to the main knuckle bearing be by undoing the main spring?

I guess I'll see if they are returnable and not take them apart until then so I don't void the warranty. They are already un-mounted and another pair mounted in their place. But, if I am stuck with them, I'll do the operation. I bet you're right, start by taking out the mainspring, look inside. thanks.

This question is answered, and raises another.

 

The loose toepiece was caused by the mainspring din setting backing out to zero.. At no spring pressure, the toepiece wobbles loose.

(prob skiing around on 2 or 3 din for weeks)

 

However, here's the thing. The bindings are PX Race 15, din 8 to 15. I had it set at 8. Such a loose setting apparently backs out gradually on its own. So iit IS true that you shouldn't buy a binding that you are going to set at the  low extreme of the din range. (for the reason I discovered.)  When I bought it I thought the lowest din would be 4 or 6, just for not knowing better. .

Or I never set that toepiece and it came packaged all the way backed out. naw.

over and out.

Note to self: PXR15s do *not* have the deformable plastic sleeve around the mainspring.

Can, Are you referring to a component that permits use of the lowest din setting? or a part that prevents the main spring backing off?  My solution is to give them to my son, who can set them on 10, and use my PX R14's which have the same boring pattern.
