Solenoid Installed

Our solenoid pack was in good condition, but we snugged up all the connections to ensure good electrical contact. If corrosion is present, further cleanup or replacement might be necessary. We remounted the solenoid pack back onto the motor housing. On older winches the cable insulation will dry out and crack. Replacement cables and boots are available or you can build replacements using welding cable and universal lug ends. Our plastic solenoid cover had seen better days, so we opted to replace it with a powdercoated aluminum cover supplied by Awl-TEQ. This sturdy cover attaches to the metal solenoid mount using the original screws and accepts the original Warn remote electrical socket in front.
