Winch Breakdown

I have the 3500 lbs winch that does not free-spin. I took it off today to take a better look at it and found that the rope jumped the spool and got between the spool and the shaft housing. I am not sure if I descried everything with the proper terms but, my which is inop now. I was able to remove the winch and take a better look at it and found that the rope was wrapped on itself. I have looked on the internet for a breakdown of the parts and which one exactly do I need.
What i need is the parts list so that I can order the parts that I need to get my which back in operational level.. I will also have to get a new rope. Any help with this I would greatly appreciate it.

guess a good question to ask would be ---- what kind of winch do you have ?

Since you know what kind of winch you have, have you tried going to the website of that company and seeing if there are parts available ?

Re: Winch Breakdown

I have the polaris winch. I have gone online to find the winch but have only seen the winch that is for an 08 polaris quad. I called a local dealer but the young man on the other side of the phone could not find it in his computer. I would imagine that there should be a part breakdown some where online. It is a factory winch.

Re: Winch Breakdown

when mine did this,the wire/rope got in between the spool and the housing, seperated the 2 and the motor teeth barely contacted the teeth on the housing. it then chewed it up nice and shiny for me and i got to replace it.

That is what mine did exactly!!!!!!! I would like to be able to rebuild it myself but first need to find the right parts for it.

I don't know. Real easy to swap out a winch only with a viper and leave all other electronics in place

Of course we sell them
