Angle sensor

Can the plug on the angle sensor be un plugged and greased with dia-electric grease without removing the protective sensor cover?

also when installing / replacing a old angle sensor, is there a pre load procedure for the new one, or can your just install it .... plug it in and go?
any how too info helpful.. thanks ~ dawg

The Rubicon would need it pre-loaded but not the Foreman. You should be able to unplug it without removing the cover but it might be easier to remove it if you haven't done it before.

The angle sensor tells the "computer" how far to turn the shift motor.

As for dielectric grease on the angle sensor yes it helps greatly i re dielectric grease mine every three or 4 rides cause its a real pain if u get stuck far from the truck and get it wet then u can go about 15 yards and have to stop so u can change gears

My foreman 500 is having some shifting issues, and the flashing code is "3", which tells me the angle sensor is the issue. Where is this thing?

Somebody correct me if I'm wrong, but in my photo it "should" be located above (behind) the shift motor sticking out the top of my engine, Beside the Driveshaft

Yep, just beside the shift motor is the sensor. Just 2 allen bolts hold it on on the 500.
