    How to tighten or check the tighness on alpha z tower

    I have an 09 RZ4 with the alpha z tower. We are new to this boat, and while cruising around 25mph and some bumps, the tower seems to move quite a bit.

    Is there a way to check how the tower is attached to the boat and tighten anything?

    Thanks.

    IIRC, there are 2-3 nuts on studs, accessed from the bottom side of the deck. Socket on long extension. I think they might be 7/8".

    So I quite randomly took a picture of the under side of the alpha z mounts last week. This is looking from the front on the starboard side.



    I have no idea how you could teach them. I would try going in from the rear locker and try and figure out a way to reach it.

    If you aren't able to weasel an extension in there you will have to remove all the nuts from interior panel(7/16 wrench) and remove the panel. That's what I do when you have to replace the tower based anyways.
