      I have a wheel mounted autohelm on my Bavaria 36 which for the past four years has been fine except for this year when it has decided to dis-engage when in use. You can see the leaver moving to the off position as the wheel works. No doubt it is adjustment but before I have a go at that, has anyone else had this problem and is it more tension or less needed?

        Bavaria 36 2002

        Ours used to jump out of gear. It was caused because the lever became loose and the only thing that keeps it engaged is a plastic bump fitting into the back of the lever.

        Until I could do anything about it we found that one of my wife’s hair toggles wrapped around a bar and hooked onto the end of the lever solved it!!

        I don’t think tightening up the belt mechanism will have any effect on the lever jumping out of gear.



          Many thanks for that Serendipity, looks like I will have to take it apart and have a look.
