    The early models of the 7000ic3 AbuGarcia (Ambassadeur) reels may have a problem with the clicker spring coming off the pawl as mine did continually. The part number on the foot was XXXXXXX-12. After working on it several times without success i pulled the left side plate off of the 7000ic3 that I had bought a year later, it's part number was XXXXXXX-42. There was a design change apparently as the newer left side plate has 'ears' on it that hold the spring in place.

    I called ABU Reel Repair to order the newer style side plate for my 'old' XXXXXX-12 model.

    They stated they don't have a lot of parts available for these newer reels.

    They told me to send it in for replacement.

    That's right...... they sent me a BRAND SPANKING NEW 7000ic3 under warranty for FREE! (I paid one-way shipping).

    Got a clicker problem on this model????? Send it in for a brand new improved version!

    Did I say FREE?:smile2:
