    Default Replacement Volvo out drive housing cover

    Total noob here, but I've got a boat with a significant crack to the outdrive
    upper gear housing cover (plastic piece like this https://marinepartssource.com/sx-upp...0aAvn9EALw_wcB)

    I have two questions:

    1) This looks like an easy piece to replace, am I correct?

    2) Is water intrusion into this area a problem while the cover is waiting to be replaced? I see a factory drain hole at the bottom of the cover, so I assume this wasnt meant to be water tight?

    Remove cover should just be a couple of bolts... If you look ar what is inside, you will likely find that the drive underneath the cover is always "wet".
