Looking for parts from power wedge actuator

Recommended Posts

2008 vlx, the power wedge stopped working. Took apart actuator and they both had a failed o ring witch allowed water to enter and rust my gears. I cleaned them with break Klean and a wire brush. Used a 12v power source to test motors, they work but the gear was stripped on one of them. I can find the parts online and don’t want to swap both actuators to the 5 from 3 with new modulual. So anyone have the gear?

There are also O-rings in the part of the actuator that the ram come out of. Those are more likely the source of water coming in. I got one year out of my motor after the initial fauliure and cleaning them up getting them running again but ended of replacing the motor this year.  Here is a post for what I did which includes where I got a new motor. 

if the gear is the one one the motor I would just get a new motor since you have it apart already.  If it is one of the gears on the actuator I would call dealers to see if they have any olds ones that were swapped out for new ones. The gears on the actuator are metal and all a little different but do have numbers on them that a dealer could match up from an old dead one that they replaced if they didn't toss it. 

Parts are not easy to find for these.

Ok good idea. I’ll call around to local dealers. It’s 2 of the gears. The one on the motor itself and the spur gear that touches that one and also the bottom part. I have the pics and numbers but not sure how to post on here anymore. 50150 -002 B 30/10 14.5
