Hello , new to the site. I bought a 2010 25 hp Etec E25DPLISC is the model number. It is still under a BEST warranty but my uncle went to change the inline fuel filter and had barely moved the hose that attaches to the fuel pump vapor separator inlet and the nipple snapped off. It looks like evinrude only sells the assembly now. Do you know any ways to get just the top cover to the assembly? Looks like it's held by 4 torx screws. The assembly is part number 5006492.

Not sure if the warranty will cover it because maybe the part was brittle or broke so easily but it's worth a shot.

They can be 'delicate'.  Depends on how long you can wait, I guess, for just the cover.  Maybe your dealer replaces VST's that have broken a different nipple, and get the cover for $5?

Doubting that you'll get warranty coverage, but have been wrong!

Your best bet is to find a good dealer that can start a case on Bossweb.  In that case, they should detail how the part was broken and see if Evinrude will give some consideration to help you get a new VST.  The top is not available separately.

In the future, keep that fat fingered uncle away from your engine!

Thanks for the reply. I'm hoping this is the way it works out. I have a few calls in to dealers in the area.

Is that the BRP warranty site? I'm hoping they can do something like that. I don't have high hopes for warranty coverage but I wonder what a service shop would do if they did that (outside of try to charge me for it)? I heard that the engines in the early 2000s use to sell the top separately but they moved away from that.

.... that's family I guess 😂😂

Bossweb is for the Dealers.  They can try to help as Oly stated.  You may get a reduced price on a whole new VST, if the Dealer is willing to 'plead your case' to BRP on Bossweb.

That might happen faster than waiting for just the cover to be found "somewhere" though.  Your choice...

Phil

Good deal!  We love to hear of happy endings.  [thumb]

Good idea also to try BB's first for any future needs, as Joe (the owner) is also the sponsor of this forum.
