I just did this on my '04 SX230 and did not remove the through hull fitting with all the caulk/silicone. Once I removed the exterior plastic nut, I was able to pull the cable through. I released it at the binnacle, and attached the new cable to the old and then pulled it right through.

Ok @Julian said there are three bolts to get the two binnacles apart. I removed number 8. Where are the other two?8D4D3C63-8146-474E-9BC2-F1A99610AA8D.png

On mine there were two at the top and one at the bottom (#8).


Here is the parts diagram from my model year. They don't show all three on the diagram, but they are #4. They show one of the #4 at the top, there is another on the other side in the same position.

Thank you. They were hiding under foam. I used the 1/4” fuel line method and pulled from the bilge with no issues.

Is neutral supposed to be about a 1 inch opening on the nozzles?
