    Has anyone ordered a replacement swim ladder from GG Schmitt & Sons?

    The swim ladder on my ‘97 330DA has become inoperable and won’t extend. I’ve tried cleaning and refurbishing, but no luck.

    Thanks!

    Mine broke yesterday. I'll give these folks a call and see what they have.

    I’ve read here that they are moving their factory and current have extended lead times.

    I had to replace mine a couple years ago. The company was great.

    If you post the item number I might have one in my garage. I ordered the wrong one from another company before I bought the right one from GG Schmidt.

    I’m looking for this model number: L08E3105

    it’s the sliding mount with three steps.

    Where is the model number, on the physical ladder somewhere, or in some other document?

    thanks, Todd

    On the GG Schmitt website. I just had to compare mine to those on the site.

    Call them today. They are not accepting orders till august. Well I took my ladder to the local welding professional. $260 later I got me a stronger unit than OEM. Kind of shocked by the price but thats the breaks.

    I also called them and got a 60 day minimum until retail opens up response. Bummer.
