Re: Opacmare - replacing sensor

Hi Arno, Lior and Tony

Arno,
Thanks for sharing your expertise.
I just received sensors this afternoon and will proceed with replacing them as soon as weather conditions allows me.
Before I start please let me know following:
- As of sensors connectors are they look like one on photo attached. Asking this because the guy from Greek dealership of Opacmare who sold me sensors keep saying that I need to cut connectors and solder sensor wires to existing wires. That doesn't sound right to me.
- As of removing SS cover of rotating part you are mentioning both parts. As far as I can see it's only one part that goes around rotating part and I can locate only 3 screws from the outside. Two on starboard side ( when passarella is out ) and one at the back. Is it any other screw inside that I should look for? See attached photo.

Lior,
Thanks for detailed explanation how to access to other end of sensor cable. That is exactly what I was looking for.

Tony,
Thanks for your advise. I hear same from some other Amel owners and that is first that I checked. Unfortunately sensor is dead.

For anyone else interested in this topic I'm attaching photo of label from manufacturer's packaging with Type and Part No of sensor and I'm sure that can be purchased somewhere else ( cheaper ) then Opacmare dealership.

Best Regards,
