    Half a plastic nut stuck in the reverse cable fitting

    Hi Guys

    I need the help of some you you PWC guru's, I had the plastic nut on thee reverse cable break in half and Mac_man Luke was kind enough to send me a replacement plastic reverse locking nut. ( I am ordering some aluminium ones from Torx racing)

    But I cant work out how to back out the broken half of the nut that is still in the Hull?

    do you have any ideas on how to get the broken bit out? I have attached some photo's

    the local seadoo dealer is on holidays until after new year, this is very frustrating as I can fix it no problem if I can only get the broken half of the nut out of the hull fitting.

    Thanks for any help you can offer

    Try some needle nose pliers or tweezers it should not be very tight.

    A pair of external snap ring pliers will also work very well. Just slide them in and squeeze to put pressure on the broken part and spin the pliers. You will also need the two halves of the lock collar to put it back together.

    Nice tip if its stuck heat the tips of the pliers and melt it into the plastic.

    You could also use a dental pick. They have them at most hardware stores in different sizes. You will need two, one on each side, and try and spin in out. They also carry them at HF.

    Hope that helps.

    You guys are legends I used a pair of circlip pliers . *With some patience I was able to back the broken piece out.

    Putting it back together after that took about five minutes.

    Thank you all for the advice.*

    Especially Luke for sending me the part on Christmas eve, such kindness for a stranger on a forum is amazing. Than you Luke

    Cheers*

    ^ i just did both reverse and steering last week, get a flat head, carefully push up the bottom of the broken piece away from the threads without damaging them, then use needle nose pliers and pull it out, it take 5 minutes, being careful
