Hey everyone, I have a 2018 Hobie Outback, I live on a nice size river and I really enjoy the Outback so this is not a complaint story. When I purchased my kayak I made the adjustment for the pedals right away, I am 6'3" and there was a setting perfect for me. Fast forward a year and my grandson asked if he could take it out and when I went to adjust the pedals one of them would not push the pin out so I could change the setting. I did some research online and was not able to find a way to repair the spring loaded tension that is not moving the pin. Has anyone had to make this repair and if so could you please share how to do it, thanks so much. It is the drive with the adjustment button at the top, not on the side.

George

Have you tried to shoot/saturate it with WD40 to loosen the pin?

Thanks, the pin will move manually which is how I was able to make the adjustment but pushing down on the adjustment button has no effect. It seems as though the tension spring has failed or whatever gives the pin the spring loaded feature when you push down on the button. I suppose there may be a replacement part or at worst the entire arm must be replaced. I am a little surprised as it is not a part that is used in the year that I have owned the kayak, a couple of times the first time I sat in it and this time.
