Default Replacing winch cable

I have a warn 3.0 winch. After plowing some, I will need to replace my winch cable this spring. I have extended the wire/cable fully off the winch drum, but I cannot figure out how to get it loose from the drum. Do you have to disassemble the winch? Once off how do you get the new cable to secure to the drum?[?]

rgrgoog,

Only have a second so I can't look for the thread (this happened before).

The owners manual for this winch is on the mfgr's. web site. It does say how to do it in that manual.

Wish I could help you more have to get back to work.

Brian

No luck from the website, I did e-mail warn. Just wondering if anyone else has replaced theirs and how they did it.

On the right side of this page is the manuals. I did a quick look but don't see the directions on how to replace the cable.

I believe ajhrhino had to replace his. Let's see if he can reply.

Yep, that is where I looked. Even the parts page does not help much.

Not sure either. I snapped a foot off my winch cable plowing a while back. I just got a cable clamp and re-installed the hook, did not replace the cable. Some where there is a thread regarding replacing the steel cable with a rope type cable that is supposed to be stronger. Maybe their website has some info. Of course I cannot find my manual for my Ramsey winch.

ajrhino, that is exactly what I did, broke a foot or two plowing. I fixed it allmost the same way. I added a thimble and re swaged the ends. I saw the4 thread about the rope but it really did not help any. I am waiting on my return e-mail from wa

I found this out on another forum.



"
"No problem replacing winch cable on Warn 3000. Once you have unwound the cable, release the tension on the cable and push the end back towards the hub and a little round button will fall out (you can see this after all the cable is unwound) enabling you to then just pull the end of the cable out of the hub. "
