Screw wont get loose...
I want to change the impeller of my ski and I've tried to take the pump out.
Sadly the first problem occourred already, the screw that I marked on the drawing won't get loose.
It's turning a little bit quite easily and then I feel a resistance, tunring, resistance... On a quarter turn of the screw this happens 5 or 7 times. But it's not moving out a bit
On the drawing it looks like the screw goes into part 12, the fixing plate. Is there a nut addded to the plate, holding the screw, or is it just going into the plastic?
Any ideas what to do now?

do yourself a favor now and order both left and right fixing plates then forced that bolt out.

Keep spinning, and when it stops backing out grab it with pliers and pull. It gets stuck in the bushing. I have mine apart like 8 to 10 times already.

Any idea how to force it out?
The single Idea I got is to destroy/cut the fixing plate.
The bolt isn't backing out at all, not one millimeter. While turning the screw I pushed from the right side with a screwdriver very hard on it, but no difference...

before you buy new plates, get a drill and a small enough bit, remove battery and find the turning insert,drill into the plastic and the brass insert enough not to drill into the bolt, leave the drill bit in there and try undo the bolt, I've had 100% strike rate with this method until i did it on my own ski.
if it doesn't work, buy some plates.
