2012 Malibu Response Txi

Recommended Posts

Our ski club has a 2012 Malibu Respone Txi.  Boat has about 400 hours and impeccably maintained.  

Just this week the boat wouldn’t shift into gear.  Replaced the throttle at the helm and that didn’t help.  Getting 12 volts at the helm and the solenoid.  Also tried the “back to the dock” lock and still won’t go into gear.  

Thinking it may be a tranny problem and that is where we are running into issues determining which tranny it actually is.  It is a ZF Hurth but the manufacturer plate is showing ZF45W.   Been on a number of websites and cannot that shows this tranny exists?

Anyone have similar problems with their tranny or seen a ZF45W?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Does that include changing the transmission fluid?  It might be worth pulling the dipstick and checking the level.
