    2000 Genesis steering cable broke?

    Hello. On my last day of vacation my steering cable broke. I have a few questions as I need to get this fixed so that Al may have something to ride for the midwest get together.

    2000 Genesis FFI.

    -does anyone know where to get a used one?
    -is there anyone in the Chicago area that would install it for me?
    -Is there a schematic that I can see so that I might do it myself?
    -does this happen often???

    Thanks to all in advance.

    Call John Zigler.

    He had a few parted out Genesis.

    Does the service manual outline how to remove/install the steering cable?

    I don't think it is particularly tricky to remove/install. There is a seal and nut at the hull transom, which is probably the hardest part. Buy a new seal, if you can.

    Or you can just have it waiting for Al as a do-it-yourself 'Genesis steering repair kit'.

    He would probably have it installed and done while you are still saying "Hello'

    Hey X45, It isn't a big deal to replace the cable,I've been hoping to run into you sooner or later. I drive past Joliet on my way out to Marseilles,if you need any help,give me a call.

    John deffinetly has several Genesis. If not ,there are Genesis parts on E-bay,you might have to send him a message
