Broken Trim switch DX6I

Two months ago I sent my DX6I in for a broken trim swith,(throttle). Yesterday it happened again. Not wanting to spend $20.00 for shipping again, I opened the back and found the problem.Looking at the throttle trim switch I found the spacing where the rocker contacts the 2 button switches, the gap was too large for contact.
This is the second time this happened is there a more robust replacement trim switch available ? or how do I permanitely fix this one?

There is a solution. East R/C manufactures aluminum replacement trim switches AND aluminum roller menu button wheels for this radio and others.

I agree go with the Aluminum trim tabs from East RC, the store is actually right down the road from my house and they are great,honest people. See the links in the other post. Yes they are costly, but they will last forever and breaking the trim tabs is quite common. East RC makes those in their shop they do not import them so you probably won't find them any other places for the same price/quality.

This is a common problem. Fix it yourself and re-inforce the repaired switch with CA or Hot Glue It will hold forever!

Why will trim & tilt on my outboard work sometimes and sometimes it will not?

I would look for a corroded ground wire or a connection that has a corroded connection. Clean all ground and hot lead connections, then seal them from moisture.

Tilt trim go up wont go down 2003 johnson 140 hp 4 stroke

You may want to check service bulletin #2002-052. Some of these motors supply too much voltage to the trim switch at the throttle lever and that trim switch stops working. There is an add-on harness #586806 that fixes this. If you can still tilt and trim the motor at the trim switch that is built into the motor housing this is likely the problem.

The back latch won't open now on the trunk door. All kinds of rust chunks were falling out of it when we tried to close it. Now it's broken. It didn't want to close at first now it won't open at all. Seems...

There is no easy cheap fix especially if you rush into it. It can be $300 in parts, plus your efforts.The handle for the back htach has likely rusted a ad seized. If you put your hand on it you can likely move it back and forth and then activate the lock and unlock modes with your power switch inside the vehicle.
The wide plastic trim above your license plate MAY need to be removed, the problem is it's retainer bolts will also be rusted. Access is from the inside underneath the back door trim panel and as you attempt to remove them they tear out of their plastic mounts in the molding.
There is a pivoting handle underneath the trim which is the one you normally grip to open and close the door manually. It is likley seized at it's pivot point due to rust buildup. If you can put a fine long balded screwdriver up beside the handle and twist gently and scrape, while spraying with a rust buster of some type, you may be able to free the handle, temporarily and rust will crumble out during the process.
If this does not free it, the bolts holding the trim must be removed to give you more access.At this stage the bolts often shear from the plastic outer trim and require the entire panel replacement.
Go to a LEXUS dealer and get the cost first and ask to see the components on screen or in hand, which you are working on before you take the plunge. Explain to the parts counter that you may need the parts and are trying to evaluate the task at hand.Then decide what you are prepared to spend.
FYI An experienced tech can seldom save the outer trim so be prepared....Best of luck, be gentle and patient

Motor died when I slowed down, and wouldn't crank again

Some motors have limit switches built in to kill the ignition if the motor is started at odd angles. The trim is different for speed and passenger load. The limit switches may be adjustable to eliminate that problem. Usually when you go to dock the boat will fish tail if the trim is too extreme for slow speeds.

Broken bezel/trim on door of GE Profile Spacemaker XL MICROWAVE.

You need to call GE customer care and order the trim you need. Make sure they will ship the replacement guide with the part. Before you do that however, carefully inspect the door to see if the old trim can be easily removed. This is important! You must determine that the door/gasket will not get out of alignment in the process. If this happens, dangerous microwave energy can escape.
