So my boat is garage kept and has about 50 hours on it. My steering cable has become very rough to turn. I tried taking it to the dealer under warranty and was told it’s corrosion and not a defective part and quoted me $900. I’m thinking of doing this myself and curious how bad of a job is this? I’ve looked at part websites and looks like it’s about $330 for the assembly. Is that the right part? Do I need more then just the steering assembly? I’m referring to part #13 in the picture.

The cross-referenced Teleflex part numbers are much cheaper if you know the length required. I unfortunately don’t know that for an fsh

No not yet. Picking it back up from the dealer Monday. I spoke with the service manager and he said he’d call Yamaha again. Well he then called and said he wouldn’t be able to until Monday due to it being a holiday. I thought ok no problem. Then it hit me.... how did Yamaha say no today in the morning but they’re closed for the holiday on the second call back. I’m calling BS and calling Yamaha Monday to see if they even opened up a claim number.
