Mercury MerCruiser Issues Recall Notice for Shift Cables

Mercury MerCruiser has issued a product safety recall of certain sterndrive packages that require the replacement of the intermediate shift cables on 2010 model Alpha and Bravo sterndrives, the company said.

The intermediate shift cable connects the engine’s remote throttle and shift control unit to the stern drive’s gearshift mechanism. If the shift cable core fitting becomes detached, the operator will be unable to change gears.
