    2005 rxt won't come out of reverse.

    My rxt goes into reverse just fine but when I push the handle back in it does not take it back out of reverse. I have to manually flip it back. I don't see anything wrong in the back but figured someone has delt with this issue. I am guessing something inside the black housing is not gripping the rod when I push the handle in but have not tried to take that apart yet. I was hoping it may be the spring has lost tension but it doesn't feel like it. Thanks!

    check the connections of the cable at both ends

    Get someone to move the handle while watching the cable and see if it moves in and out at the back.

    It moves out jut fine but won't pull it back in. I have to pull the bucket up manually.

    check the plastic lock nut.....they tend to break and can potentially let water into the hull. Another BRP plastic POS part!!

    i have an o5 rxt as well.....this same thing just happened to me and i can tell you exactly what it is....If you look inside your hull where the handle is at look at the cable. At the end of it there's a 90 degree hook sort of. That part of the cable broke off.

    Look at number 20. and you'll see what i mean.

    Thanks,I will check it tomorrow. Did you have to replace number 20 or did you fix it on your own?

    #20 is actually the boot...#18 is what you need which is the reverse cable. they're 120 bux new i think. Someone had one here the other day i think for 85.

    I will check it tomorrow to confirm that it is what I need. My steering cable is tight as well. I am not sure I can replace these by myself though. Anyone have someone in ocean city,md they recommend?
