FH4 H shifter not working

Not sure if there is anyone other than me that has this issue, but im sure there is… Im on a PC and im running the game flawless with one exeption, my H shifter does not work, i know the game recognize the Thrustmaster TH8RS as i can see it as device 2 and i can program the buttons, but whene i have clicked exit and save, it all goes away, it does not accept the shifter part from gear 7, and it now does things i have not told the game to do, so im forced to use the flappy paddel shifters which i dont want to do especially with older cars and so on… Plz fix this.

PS, every time whene releasing the clutch whene in neutral, all the cars makes a grinding noise, that should not happend.
