About The Product
The turbine shaft shield (A40) is a replacement part made by Polaris. Making this a genuine OEM product. The turbine shield plays an important role when it comes to the drive shaft assembly as it helps protect and uphold the integrity of the shaft as well as the turbine. It does this by keeping any outside influence from compromising these parts which can disrupt the cleaner during the cleaning process.
This part is made from a metal material and is located near the front but in the center of the cleaner. Making it easy to find when trying to locate it or the other surrounding parts that the frame houses. It also is held on by a couple of screws making it easy to remove or replace when needed.
How to Remove and Replace
Before you can do this quick fix you will need to strip the cleaner down a little bit. This will cover your entire axle turbine in the middle of the cleaner. The purpose of this is if any dirt or debris gets in the body of the cleaner then you will have to take the whole thing apart and clean it out thoroughly. To remove the turbine shaft shield, the only tool you will need is a Phillips head screwdriver. The turbine shaft shield is shaped like a T and there will be two screws at the top to be removed. Once those screws are removed, you can now replace the shaft shield with the new one. To replace this is very simple. All you have to do is line the holes up where the screws were. Screw it back in and you are all set. It is important you do not use a power tool to screw them in because you could risk cracking the body.
