Beneteau rudder bearing

Where should I begin my search for an upper rudder bearing for our Beneteau First 42? I have not disassembled anything but noticed an occasional rubbing noise which was due to a very slight movement at the top of the rudder post. I can only detect it if I hold a finger against it when the boat is in short steep seas, when it makes the noise. Is it likely a nylon or polyethylene bearing?

Re: Beneteau rudder bearing

Hi Lunita, did you manage to find replacement rudder bearings? And if so did you find them on the beneteau spare parts website? And where?

I have been looking for the replacement rudder bearings on the parts website but nothing is listed under [Engine]-[Steering] for my oceanis 40 or for any of the other boats that vaguely resemble mine?!!

Thanks for any information.
