    Start Button Replacement ?

    How do you replace the red start button on the newer ski's? The switch is fine but the red rubber boot is split. I have done a few on the older 2 strokes and you can just pry it out with a small screwdriver. However this button is totally different. The dealer said there is a screw on the back of the housing to remove the switch but I don't see anything......

    I've split the housing anytime I've needed to work with those components. Never had to replace just the button cover though, so couldn't tell you if it was as simple as just prying it out.

    Look underneath the housing and you will see the Allen bolts. Very simple to change out the red rubber button. I have changed my out twice now over the years.

    On my '11 GTI, there are no allen bolts. There are a couple of small slots along the bottom to insert a very thin screwdriver to pop open the housing. It has a hinge along the top of the housing and it swings open to expose the button and switch. Quick 5 minute fix....$6.00 rubber button

    That's exactly what I had to do. I didn't see any screws and started discover the slots to use a screwdriver. I got lucky though, I was able to pull out the old button and press in the new without having to remove or open anything. Good to know though!!
