Default 2700se cockpit handle - tightening

Hi,
I have recently bought a 2700se - and new to the forum. The handle next to the steps up to the windscreen has come loose - and the nut is only accessible from beneath, just adjacent to the cabin sliding door - but is almost impossible to get to. Just wondering if anybody has had any luck tightening these?
thanks

Welcome aboard Freobhoy!!!

What is on the underside? marine carpeting? Whatever is blocking access will need to be removed.

Welcome Aboard

Some pictures would help, however as shrew said you will most likely need to pull back the headliner to access it.

Thats going to be a tricky one since the nut would be inside the cabin door slide..... Can you see the nut? It should not be too far that you cant slip a box end wrench over it....

Yeah, thatís the one - just above the door - you can just about get your fingers on the nut, but not enough to tighten it

If you can get your fingers on the nut, then you should be able to get a tool on the nut, shouldn't you? You might need a ratcheting box wrench or one with an articulating head.

We have a 2003 2700SCR. It had a similar issue. I opened the instrument panel access panel adjacent to the step/handle and reached inside with a wrench to tighten the nut. It worked. Not sure if this will work for your boat but access from the sliding door or bath was not possible. Good luck

Hi thanks very much for tips, I removed the instrument panel and with a bit of nimble finger / wrench work have now managed to tighten it up
