Sorry to bother you again with another weird question. On my gravelbike with Campagnolo Ekar and tune Prince CL rear hub (3 teeth, N3W freehub body), I removed the rear wheel for a routine task and made a stupid mistake re-installing it: The chain was not seated correctly on a cog but wedged inbetween the cassette and the frame. Only while tightening the thru-axle did I notice this, loosened the axle, put the chain on a cog correctly and re-tightened.
I then noticed that the freewheeling sound was different from before - less "dry", slightly "softer". I removed the wheel again and removed the cassette, but everything looked fine with the freehub body and cassette. When turning the freehub body backwards slowly, I noticed there is now one soft click shortly before the actual "hard" click. The soft click doesn't seem to engage the hub, as I can turn the hub forwards again "over" that soft click until it re-engages with the previous "hard" click. I suspect one pawl might be misaligned from tightening the thru-axle while the jammed chain caused a sideways force on the freehub body.
What should I do now? Is it possible that a pawl is misaligned? Taking the bike to an LBS will take ages (if I find any that services tune hubs at all). Should I buy the tool for removing the freehub body and check the pawls? It's not exactly cheap but I might need it sooner or later anyways for servicing the bearings. I fear that riding the bike now might damage the freehub mechanism further... I could bang my head against the wall for not paying attention while mounting the wheel!
