Yamaha 703 remote tilt trim switch replacement

I've just received a new switch in the post, as my old one will go down but not up. Can you believe, £66, extortionate.


Anyway, back to the subject. How easy is it, or not as the case may be, to strip the unit to replace the switch? And secondly, does anyone have a manual on these popular remotes for guidance.

Many thanks.

Well jumped in at the deep end this weekend, in between the race for life and other family duties, and stripped the remote down. Wasn't to bad a job, just had to be careful with the little springs.

The switch required cutting down and new waterproof connectors fitted as it had far to much wire and to many terminals, presumably for those that run twin engines. Before I cut the wire I swapped the up and down wires round to check it was the switch. Once connected up all run as it should.

Reassembly is a different matter, how do Yamaha fit so many wires into such a small space. I've put it back together at least five times and seem to always manage to crimp a wire somewhere. I think that I'm going to have to use some stategic cable ties to hold them in place. But once I'm over that hurdle then the jobs a good 'un. :grin:
