    2011 RXT-X 260 waterbox removal

    Can someone tell me how to remove my water box on a 2011 RXT-X 260. Its my first ski and I usually do my own stuff . I looked at the box and there is no straps so is the bolts to the sides that holds it in place? Any help would be appreciated

    There is a strap, right over the back end of the waterbox. The strap has a square metal ring on each end and hooks onto receiving clips fixed to the hull floor. It can be very tight to push down to un clip. Many cut a V slot in a screwdriver to use as a specialist tool. Other than the strap, it's just the clamp that holds it to the end of the flexi hose which connects to the manifold asembly. There are no other fixings.

    If you have no strap, then someone has left it off and it's only supported on the front clamp (not good). You need this strap to stop the waterbox leaping up and down in the hull, putting leverage strain on the manifold fittings. I bet you'll find the strap under the engine somewhere. You'll certainly see the two receiving hooks on the hull floor, once you remove the box.

    The best tool you should get is a Shop Manual here: www.brpmanuals.com

    water box is very easy, should be a vband clamp at the manifold, take that off and undo the strap over the box, slide it back and it will come out fairly easy.

    the only thing that may give you some trouble is if the vband clamp is stuck to the vband itself, just tap it with a screwdriver and hammer lightly and it will usually come loose.
