the steering has been stickin a little over night here and there i would just grab the skis and pull them left and right a few times and it would free up. now after a cold and windy night its really stiff and when i turn the skis it lets out a great squeek and it doesnt seem to be freein up atol. i cant seem to reach anything with the greese gun so i dont know what to do.
ive had it runing for awhile to see if heat would free it up any and it didnt help much.
only thing i thought of is spray lube but i dont think i can reach anything i would be sprayin blindly
please any kinda help that would keep me from gettin angry at it would be awesome

Look underneath the muffler and see if there is snow coming in past the tie rod boot. I had this problem with my kids. The boot is attatched to a piece of plastic which can come loose allowing snow to build up between the tie rods and the floorpan. Also check the belly of the floorpan. If it is pushed in to far from hitting objects it will rub on the rod coming from the steering shaft to the right spindle, causing a bind. Hope that helps.........

Also, if you've been riding alot of powder without closing the snoflap on the nose cone, there could be ice build up behind the main steering column bar. Sounds too me like you just need to let it sit in a heated garage for a few hours.

The plastic box on the front where the steering is you have to put silicone around it ....it will stop the snow from getting in behind it and getting into the boots...

He's got an older Phazer. But great fix on what appears to be a common issue with the new Phazers.
