Incorrect inventory for set 42027

Recommended Posts

I think the inventory for set 42027 (Desert Racer) contains a part that doesn't belong:
https://rebrickable.com/parts/15457/technic-worm-gear-3l-with-bush-ends/

Unfortunately, the instructions are of terrible quality and one can only guess what some of the listed parts are but I've built the set and it definitely didn't need that part.

I would have filed a change request but I can't find where to do that. I think I'm too low level :(

This set has alternate inventory versions.  Version 1 does not contain the 15457.  If you are going to add this to your set list, be sure to choose version 1.  If you are just looking at the inventory, there is a small dropbox (v2 normally shows by default) for choosing the version you wish to view.

The change request will be at the bottom right on larger screens.  Smaller screens can find a change request on the comment page.  If you are not at the level to submit yet, you can come to the forum and ask questions like you did. :)

The part was included when this set was produced. It was used in the combi alternate build.

Ok, so the part does belong to the set but it's not used in the build and it's not a spare. Interesting - no change request required. Also, I should have read the comments on the set because it's all there (awkward).

v1 of the instructions contains a similar worm gear (https://rebrickable.com/parts/4716/technic-worm-gear/) instead of the 15457. The 1 part difference is because v2 contains the sticker set.
