    Known Problem - 2012 Seadoo bracket?

    Hi .. I have taken my craft (2012 GTi 155) for its 1st service.. and the dealer has shown me a bolt that is holding in the jet pump housing on that is spinning in the bracket and not coming out. The dealer has said it is a common problem. Has anyone else ever experienced this?

    More detail - Dealer says bracket is plastic with a brass thread sunk into it.. and the bras thread is only "locktited" in. The brass thread has no teeth or shape to prevent spinning in the plastic...

    Ok cool thanks .. So can you tell me do the dealers just fix it up on warranty? Have you known that to be the case?

    So when u want to remove the IBR bucket and it spins , u will need to remove IBR motor from inside to get to nut that's spinning ....

    one of my friend 2011 did same thing, when the ski will not be Under warranty, i will look into making a home made bracket made of aluminium or stainless.

    Should this be made a sticky so people who are still in warranty can get this done ? because i was told it would be hell loads of labour to remove engine to get to it.

    Yes, it would be difficult to get to it with the engine in the hull, but the plate in question is no where near the engine and the engine would NOT need to come out for this to be fixed....Tell your dealer to hire a few skinny techs!!!!!
