Today I got my 2014 sportsman 570 stuck and went to winch myself out at a very bad angle. My winch rope ended up getting stuck in between the spool and the motor housing. Now I have notice some play in the spool and when I use the motor I am hearing some clucking sounds. My question is should i go head and replace the winch or should it be fine? In the pictures you can see the gap that there is now. I am not sure if it was there before. FYI the gray stuff is silicon where i am trying fill that gap to prevent the rope for getting caught again.
