Can anyone tell me how to remove a 2004 Vetus 150-55 bowthruster motor.  The type on the plate is R125/3. All the manuals I can find refer to a bottom flange with 4 bolts but as you can see there is no flange! Many thanks.

I think you've probably worked this problem out for yourself,  if not the two philip head screws that are visible on the top of the bow thruster are super long and go right through the body of the motor and screw / attach the motor to the bottom flange. By removing those screw (from memory) the motor should then lift clear. On my unit obviously to remove the motor it will need disconnecting electrically, dont forget to disconnect the battery first! There will also be a shear pin where the motor drive slots into the impeller drive on my unit it is loose and easy to drop. Be careful. Hope the above might be useful.
