Talking Barbarossa winch help!

I have a Jeanneau 36/38 Sunshine that has Barbarossa Winches. I need to service all four of them. Iím looking for schematics for a Barbarossa 46.2 and 40. Anyone out there have schematics? Or a guide to help me out with my maintenance? Thanks for any help.

Barbarossa was taken over by Harken quite a while ago. You may find twhat you need vis-a-vis parts available through Harken. In terms of servicing the winches, that is not difficult. Take them apart piece by piece and take snap-shots at each stage with a digital camera that will allow you to see how the parts were assembled. Lay the parts out in the order of removal on an old towel and clean them in a bucket of mineral spirits, returning each cleaned piece to its position on the towel. It's not difficult and there are not that many parts. Lube the shafts and bearings with winch grease and the springs and other small ratchet parts with 3 in 1 oil.
