Yeah I reckon the actuator aint seized, as you say it is very stiff but can be moved
I also agree that I have a dodgy WGS (as I cannot blow through it) but was not aware that it could be opened/repaired, I will try that tomorrow
So, to clarify, If the repair is sucessful I should be able to blow through the hose on idle? Or does the ski have to be at specific RPMs before this is possible?
The shorter hose from the WGS does not go anywhere and simply releases pressure into the hull if/when the solenoid allows it to, Is this correct?
I may order a replacement also, and have found this:
Is this the correct item?
Thanks again for the assistance

That is the correct part number.
The procedure is as posted above.
With the WGS installed and the ski NOT running. you should not be able to blow through it. (use either hose)
When the ski is running at idle, you should be able to blow through it.

The output to the WGS is a Pulse Width Modulation signal of unkown voltage but it won't be near as high as 12VDC. I would guess it is probably about 4VDC PWM since it is being handled by the micros in the ECM.
Carefully untwist the locking tabs and open/clean it with CRC 656 if it's not in warranty. You don't have anything to lose and $70+ to gain.

I believe it's a 8VDC PWM signal.
As for the WGS going bad. Yes they get moisture in them and rust. There is not much you can do about it as far as I can tell. I’ve got 1 ski with 200hrs and the original WGS.
This is what a bad WGS looks like
