Autohelm ST7000

Hi there,

I have an autohelm st7000 and out of the blue it stopped working. When I press the AUTO button I can hear the motor clicking but the steering wheel never engages and I can still turn the wheel freely. I had a friend tell me I probably need a new nylon gear and that will fix the problem. Does this sound right? Has anyone else experienced this issue and resolved? Thanks for all the help!
