Run my winch cable backwards?
My 12-year-old warn m8000 just stopped turning in retrieve direction but it still turns the other way. The manual says donít ever wind the cable around the other way because then it will lose its self-braking capability. I take it this means it would still work like that, right? For pulling out of mudholes I donít really need the self-braking capability, do I?
its your life do what you want....but dont complain when you get yourself into a worse problem!...the problem with the winch is probably bad brushes or....dirty contacts inteh control box....try cleaning stuff and replacing brushes before you do anything else.....you know maintanence

Yeah, somebody just gave me a link to an article on it. The manual implies you can't service it (sealed construction, lubed for life, just shut up and buy the thing) but I should have known better. Any tips on getting it open? I didn't see any obvious bolts if I remember. (Jeep's in the shop so I'm not looking at it - new engine before friday!)
