Carbon Seal Question
Guys, I did a search buy couldn't come up with what I was looking for.
I've got a pretty good amount of black dust underneath the carbon seal on the GTI that I'm a little concerned about. I haven't experienced any cavitation out of the hole. I also haven't seen a single drop of water in that hull.
The ski is an '08 with 45 hours on it. Seems a little too early for the carbon seal to be failing, no?
Don't have a picture now, will post one when I get home from work. Just curious if the dust is ok, without the other sympons.

Additionally, the ski is still under warranty. Would the dealer replace it under warranty if I ask them to? Or does it have to cause a problem first?

The dark line or dust line you see is common with the carbon seal...There is no expected life span of a carbon seal..Usually when it starts cavatating or leaking water that is the time to replace the seal...
