Default i need help

i have a mini-t and i changed the steering arms to aluminum and took it out and was driving and then all of a sudden it wouldnt turn to the right so i brought it in adjusted the tie rods and that helped it a lil bit so i took the steering servo out to see if anything was broke like the spring or anything but nothing was broke so i didnt take the steering servo apart and i put it back in and it helped a tiny bit but now it is doing the same thing.the left wheel will turn to the right but the right wheel wont move i have adjusted the steering on the controller and it still dont do anything.also forgot to mention it will turn to the left just fine

So am i gonna have to buy a new steering servo or is there something else i should check

You probably chewed some teeth in the servo happened in my RC18T all the time.

I dont know if there are replacement gears for the mini-t's servo, but if there is that is usually the cheaper route then buying a whole new servo.

Does someone have a pic of the servo?

I just un screwed the 4 screws in the back of it pulled off the front part and took the bad gear out and put the good one back in closed it up an put the screws back in and was good to go.

Make sure you have the servo saver off also.

Make sure the servo saver is off and that your un-screwing the screws on the bottom not the smal ones on the top
