    ceramic washers?

    does sea doo honor failed ceramic washer claims under warranty? would my dealer install steel washers in my brand new ski? thank you.

    search for clutch washers...ceramic washers....metal washers.....there are TONS of threads on the subject. there is lots more involved with a ceramic failure than just putting new ones on. yes, it's covered under warranty, but most dealers will not properly do the work on their own. you'll have to talk to your dealer and see what they say about installing hte metal washers, but doing it yourself or sending it to Jerry is a much better option.

    I had asked my dealer to do the same and they didnt like the idea since it wasnt putting the ski back to factory specs for warranty reasons. As soon as I got the ski back home, out the ceramics went..
