Comments:  
Some Steering actuators in the affected Verado 250/300 serial number range (2B022645 and above) may be missing two screws. These screws are meant to hold the internal sensor magnet in place. The absence of these screws permits the magnet to unintentionally move resulting in a false position. It could lead to loss of steering control for the engine. 8/7/15 CUR 1 - 198 of 1186 repaired. eaj 11/6/15 CUR 2 - 418 of 1186. eaj 12/7/15 CUR 3 - 441 of 1186. eaj 3/2/16 CUR 4 - 532 of 1186 ej 6/2/16 CUR 5 - 579 of 1186 ej 9/8/16 CUR 6 - 632 of 1186 ej 12/14/16 CUR 7 - 683 of 1186 3/6/17 CUR 8 - 715 of 1186 ej 6/9/17 CUR 9 - 749 of 1186 9/20/17 CUR 10 - 770 of 1186 ej 12/12/17 CIR 11 - 781 of 1186 3/26/18 CUR 12 - 800 6/6/18 CIR 13 814 of 1186 9/14/18 CUR 14 - 830 12/11/18 CUR 15 847 of 1186 031219 CUR 16 - 856 of 1186
