I have an old motorguide trolling motor that doesn’t work. A friend gave me his working motorguide, but the switch on the foot pedal doesn’t work. The switch on my broken motor does work, so I wanted to swap the switches. The switch is that one on the pedal itself that lets you pulse the motor (not the three way swich below the speed control). I am afraid to just swap the entire foot control because my old one is 12 volt and the new one is 24 volt. Also, I don’t want to take apart the motor head if I can avoid it. I have taken all of the screws off of the bottom of my foot control, but it won’t come apart. The base is still stuck on there. I have tried prying gently with a screwdriver, but it is definitely attached somehow. Any ideas how to get it apart. I was so glad to find this — Are you sure there isn’t a pin that runs threw the side for the foot control. It may have one that has to be removed. It should have a clip on one end of it. Other wise, remember they are sealed to make them water proof. If that’s the case. Put a scraper between it and pry it gently. It most luckily has a ridge and gasket in it, that is meant to seal it water tight. Do not put a 12 volt switch on a 24 volt system. It will burn up. Good luck.
