That is exactly what happened to me. Do you see the fourth cog after you push the fourth floor button? You need to stand on the staircase just above it. turn as if the cog is right in front of you and you will get the blue X button to remove the cog. Please try it and let me know. I know it looks like you can not get the cog out as there is a wall there, but pretend that there is a hole there. I think the level is broken after you remove the third cog and fall over the edge and die. The level does'nt line up properly and it thinks you are at the top of the level.
This worked for me. I had the same problem. The elevator is supposed to go to the top and the cog should be there, but it gets stuck.

No, in my case it appears to be different. When I first entered the elevator room on the 2nd floor I got the first cog, then something happened with the cage, which now is on top of the elevator. This is preventing it from going up to either the 3rd or 4th floors. If I hit the control button on the 2nd floor, the elevator goes down to the lower floor that I can not access. If I go up to one of the upper floors and hit a control button, the elevator will come back up but its stuck again at the 2nd floor with no way to access the remaining cogs. It even makes a grinding sound as its trying to push the cage out of the way so it can continue going up, but this does not happen and it eventually just stops.

If the elevator is on the lower floor, I can walk out on to the invisible floor, but after a bit, fall to my death.

Here is my problem and it's the same problem for almost of people I think.
When you push on 2F button, the elevator goes to 1F and it is not normal.
Then when you push on 3F button, it stops just before 2F.
And when you push on 4F button, it stops between 2F and 3F.
Then we can not access to the gears, can not access to the climbing wall neither.

Any news on when the 360 patch is going to be released? I'm also stuck at the elevator in the Research Base.

I downloaded PS3 patch and it worked !!! YEAH !!!
I just reloaded my save and the elevator was back to the 2nd floor. I could remove 3rd and 4th gears and passed to the next zone.
Thank you so much ! You saved my day.

Just downloaded the update for the Xbox 360 version. It finally works! Hooray!!!! No more stupid glitch.
03-18-2013, 10:44 PM
Great to hear, Eagleheart27!
So is it fixed for you now, Nanabijou?
03-19-2013, 04:40 AM
The update worked great, thanks guys and gals....
There are two games in the last couple years that came out of the blue and I would consider them to be the best games I have played (and I play a lot).. Then new Max Payne and you new Tomb Raider! Great Job...

I downloaded the update to my 360 and it worked, I had left the base to kill time exploring other locations and when I returned after the update the elevator was in the correct position above the gate. Quickly solved the gear puzzle and moved on.

So great to hear guys! Glad this issue has been resolved. Thank you so much for your patience!

Xbox 360 Research Lab Bug ?
Removed all four gears and elevator doesn't drop ?
05-08-2013, 02:50 PM
Anyone know how to fix the elevator death? I dropped the elevator all the way down and every time I try to drop/jump/crawl off the ledge to drop down I instantly die. I only get a couple hours a week to play and really don't want to restart the hole flippen game. Please help!!

Recently got Tomb Raider, playing on PS3 and got into this glitch I tried all different options available on the Internet.
- Jumping from a different level
- Hold myself down
- Travel to another level and back
- Restart from checkpoint
None of the above helped, I always die mid-air before I reach the floor (dropped lift). I spent a lot of time collecting the relics until here and I really don't want to have to start again so close to the end.
Ps. My PS3 has the latest patches and the game also.

Xbox 360 all 4 gears removed but nothing happens.
This has happened to me, is there a fix? I just got an Xbox and downloaded the game. All gears have been removed, but Lara keeps mentioning the ladder when she is on the 3rd floor but the gear up there has been removed. Or possibly thre was not a gear there, I don't know, but it is definitely not there now.
