Minn Kota Terrova Right Turn Noise

Recommended Posts

The Terrova turning gears are making significantly more noise (grinding) when turning to the right vs turning to the left.  Left turn sound is normal (whirring sound), like when originally purchased 12 years ago.  Have searched You Tube but haven't found this particular problem addressed.  Wondering if anyone on this forum has had this particular problem.

1.  Do these gears require lubrication?  

2.  Is it likely continued use will cause an eventual breakdown?

Thanks, any help is much appreciated.

The gears in the steering housing are probably worn out.

If it was me I'd probably just replace the whole assembly and be done with it.

Thanks Kenmitch for the reply.  I would never have found the information on the other forum.  Based on that information, it seems like your suggestion of replacing the whole assembly is the best way to go.  Again thanks.
