08 VLX Transducer. Where is it located?

Recommended Posts

Hi I have a replacement but I don't know where it goes. I assume it is glued to the inside of the hull somewhere?

Can someone please help me by letting me know where it is and how to install it? I'd be much appreciative. Thanks

On my 2006 VLX it is mounted through the hull just in front of the transmission on the drivers side and the paddle wheel is on the opposite side.Should just screw out.

Nothing is ever easy with me lol. Ok I did find that and unscrewed it. It's round. Does it just pull out? The dealer got me a new one but its not round and comes with an epoxy.

It's a medallion PD-WBL Depth traducer. Does this sound correct?? Thanks

I called Wizard lake marine today and they told me the old transducer to the left of the paddle wheel is no longer made because they've had lots of problems with them. The new one just gets epoxidied to the the fiberglass down close to the old one by the tranny.

Note for anyone else the old screw off transducer is depth only air temp comes from another part and water temp comes off of paddle wheel. Thus it is safe to cut the old cable to pull new cable through the floor.
