Hi All,

I have a Beneteau Antares 760 and the steering is very stiff.

The steering is Teleflex.

Should the cable be greased or cleaned or both, and do you need to take the cable out to do this?

Any help would be useful,

Best wishes,

Paul

I used to squirt Wurth HS2000 grease down the tube to grease the cable. The grease is fluid at first, so it flows down the tube and runs out at the far end, then, as the solvent evaporates, the grease thickens up, and does its job.

If some of the strands of the cable have parted, and are catching internally, grease probably won't do the trick.
