Replacing a sensor wire may feel intimidating at first, but the process is pretty simple. This article will walk you through how to replace the sensor wire with 8 easy steps.  

It might be handy to have the following ready:

  • #19 Open Wrench or Adjustable Wrench
  • Phillips Head Screwdriver
  • Zip-Tie

We’ll need to pop open your covers to locate your sensor wire. Take a look at the instructions below on how to get this done.

Step 1: Remove the four bolts holding the Left/Right pedals.

Step 5: Cut any zip ties holding the wire to the frame. Take off the screw for the sensor bracket. If there’s too much glue, carefully remove any excess to dismount the wire.

Step 6: Place the new sensor wire onto the bracket. Make sure it is positioned close to the magnet on the belt wheel. This ensures your monitor will properly track your movement later.

Step 7: Reconnect wire(s) to the LCD Monitor. Replace the zip tie holding the wire to the frame. 

*Before reassembly, wave a magnet in front of the sensor. Ensure the display tracked the activity. 

Step 8: Mount the tension knob to the cover. Reinsert screws and replace your pedal bolts.
