The shaft and motor is all one unit and will have to be replaced as a whole. If you’re the original owner, it should be under warranty. If not, it’ll run you about $650 from a service center.

Yep. And the shaft is sealed to the motor. They replaced mine as an entire assembly. New motor, US2, wiring, everything.

Just curious. If the motor is sealed to the shaft how are you able to adjust the trolling motor up and down?

You lift the shaft and motor as one unit. There is a slip collar that you tighten afterwards on the shaft that holds that position.
