How to clean Citica 200e

Recommended Posts

How do I get the handle side off? I unscrewed the three screws on the side and unscrewed the spool tension knob but still can't get the cover off to get to the main gear? I can't find anything on Google about how to do it either :)

My owner's manual doesn't provide a schematic either????

Any Experience?

1.  Shimano website has the schematic.

2.  You need to remove part# 3931 before you can remove the crank side cover.

3.  Send it to a pro.

ok well i got it back together but now the drag wheel doesn't click and the spool release is not as firm, it has a lot of play in it. Does anybody know who I can send it to? Preferably a member on here, it will take weeks for me to send it to Shimano.

Just break out your schematic and follow it to a T, paying special attention to the orientation of every piece. Even someone and mechanically inept could follow it, there is hope for you. ;D

The schematic is readily available at Shimano's site for a free downloadable pdf.

Just remember.  If it ain't broke, .... it will be.

I would have bet money on that.

They are very simple to disassemble. It's going the other way that gives so many people problems. They got to be right or you got big problems.

If you can't find anyone close to you to fix it box it up and I will clean and put it back together for you. Just cover the freight. (Unless I have to purchase any missing parts) LOL.

ok thanks !

Honestly this is really simple to do and while it make take a few tries of putting it together and breaking it down again. I honestly have no doubt you can do it.

Uh oh, now there 's a missing part right there, the drag star clicker ( part 2122/2123 ), that teeny tiny wee sized part that 's housed in a teeny tiny wee sized hole on the handle side of the drag star.

Well, you can always send it either to DVT or to the Reel Mech.

Better luck next time when you try to dissassemble your reel.

BTW, the owner 's manual doesn 't have any schematics, there 's another leaflet in the box of your reel, the schematics leaflet, all reels come with it.

I ended up having to sit with the instructions inside the box and piece by piece make sure I had it all together correctly.
