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. eaj11/6/15 CUR 2 - 418 of 1186. eaj12/7/15 CUR 3 - 441 of 1186. eaj3/2/16 CUR 4 - 532 of 1186 ej6/2/16 CUR 5 - 579 of 1186 ej9/8/16 CUR 6 - 632 of 1186 ej12/14/16 CUR 7 - 683 of 11863/6/17 CUR 8 - 715 of 1186 ej6/9/17 CUR 9 - 749 of 11869/20/17 CUR 10 - 770 of 1186 ej12/12/17 CIR 11 - 781 of 11863/26/18 CUR 12 - 8006/6/18 CIR 13 814 of 1186
