Re: Bow Thruster Siezed

When you eventually get the thruster apart,. I would suggest you take the motor to a rebuild shop. . There is an open roller bearing at the bottom of the motor where the tube enters the motor. I would bet you that that bearing is also terribly rusted and needs replacing. I would have the motor gone over while you have it out.
About every 8 months I drop the bow thruster enough to grease the spline on the bow thruster and put a bunch of grease up into the receptacle for the spline.
18 years and it drops out like a cannon ball.
In addition you can replace the lip seal and donuts that are inside the boat if it looks like it need it.
