    P-X OPAS removal question...

    Okay, it's been since my '04 that I've done this stuff...how do I remove those funky bent rod spindles that connect between the paddles, thru the hull and out to the venturi side?

    You can pull on the rod and feel that it seems to have a hitch in it, like this _l- well actually that dash on the right side is really symetrically opposite to the one on the lower left...like bicycle pedals. And you can see from inside the hull that there's a rubber, secured channel for it to travel in...not really sure. Anyone pulled this out? You can't leave it in because the plates won't clear with it left in.

    I pulled mine out the outside. You just have to wiggle it around..she will come. The hard part I had was pulling the rubber boot thing out. Pull hard enough and it comes out.

    I was told you don't have to but it could bounce around in your hull if it came loose from the glue that's in there. I say pull it out. I found it helpful to twist and pull HARD! Hope that helps.

    Got it out...took some skin, but at least you know you got it right if you're left bleeding.
