    Changing out the fitting plate inside left rear of hull...

    Has anyone change out the "fitting plate" on their ski? Its the through hull fitting the bailers connect to. One of my barbs on the "inside of the hull" side broke off and I need to change the plate. Looks like the IBR motor and module may need to come out to gain access from the inside of the hull (under the left access panel) but what about the side in the pump tunnel? How does this fitting go together? The parts diagram shows a big o-ring but I cant make sense of it.

    Yup, the pump has to come out and the iBR has to come out to do it properly with plenty of room to work....

    It's pressed into a fitting that's bolted to the hull. I can't exactly recall but I don't think the ibr needs to be removed, the fitting is snapped into place to the outter plastic fitting in the pump area

    Looks like the IBR has to come out anyway so I can get to the hoses on the inside of the hull.

    that's a tricky bit, be especially sure the locktabs x2 are fully engaged in the fixing plate or you will have a leak there.

    it's tricky, clamps for the bailers and everything else has to be properly positioned.

    I'd suggest reading all IBR related threads here. This area is full of pitfalls.

    The part is also hard to come by. Order one _today_

    fortunately for some of us, seadoo gave up this silly design

    careful installing the bolts, if you spin an insert, pain follows ( and a whole lot)

    oh yeah..pretty tricky. Helpful top have an extra pair of hands for the assembly.

    Pete, according to the only diagrams I can find online, there are no bolts. This particular plate snaps in via locking tabs and an o-ring. Once I have the IBR and the pump out, it looks like a fairly straight forward swap.
