My son went to start the ski and it made a huge bang. (similar to an M-80 if you know what I mean)
I looked under the hood, and after the smoke cleared I saw a butt load of fiberglass chunks everywhere. I believe what exploded was the water lock box. (a fiberglass box, about the size of a big shoe box, located under the carberator.

Can anybody tell me;

A. What would have caused this? (the ski ran great all weekend til this happened) is this a common problem with these skis?

B. Can this be replaced without pulling the engine? (I can get the part for about $150.)

C. Can it be replaced by a backyard mechanic (me) or do you need special tools/hoist/ etc. and lots of prior jetski repair knowledge?
