Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Bowthruster spinning

Hi Paul, you need to put the thruster in the down position, unbolt the motor and lift it up to replace the flex coupling, two bolts come out with a standard Allen key  but the bolt behind the motor needs Ann extra long key or in my case I cut an Allen key section 5cm and used an extension socket to remove the last bolt, warning the motor is heavy.

Joel,

Thanks.On further investigation I may have answered my own question. It looks like the flexible coupling is accessable from inside the boat. I'd still be interested in any advice in how best to go about changing it.

Cheers,
Paul
