Angry Problems with my 2014 Ranger

I recently purchased a 2014 Polaris Ranger 900 EPS Titanium Matte Metallic LE. I've owned for about a month and a half and have just over 30 hours on my machine. At the first service I had to replace my belt. Does anyone know if this is normal? Will I have to do this every service? Is there some underlying issue with my machine?

Now I'll give you a breakdown of all the accessories I have with a comment on what I have noticed so far.
  • Pro-Fit LX Cab Complete - Nice cab. I like the features it offers. However, it is not worth the cost. I have had my machine to the dealer many times and they just can't seem to get it right. I've been noticing constant squeeking noises and no one at my dealer can help me out. Also, don't be fooled by the pro fit video on the web site...this cab system is not that easy to put on and off. And without consulting me, my dealer made the roof fixed. That means no taking the cab on and off in under a minute for me.
  • Dash Mounted Audio Kit - This is one of my favorite features. This is mounted very nicely and sounds great. The Bluetooth feature was also easy to figure out and very easy to sync with my smartphone.
  • Ranger XP 900 Wiper/Washer Kit by Polaris - Don't know what Polaris was doing with this one. Without ever using this all the fluid leaked out of the storage tank. The deal says this happens because the storage tank for the washer fluid is to close to the engine. Does anyone know the fix for this?
  • Polaris Pro HD Integrated 4500lb Winch - No complaints on this. Looks nice but haven't had to use it yet.
  • Front & Rear A-Arm Guards - No complaints on these accessories and they seem like they are very strong and give lots of protection.
  • Front Brush Guard - I like this brush guard. The extreme one was to bulky looking for me. This brush guard provides lots of protection and looks good to.
  • Rear Brush Guard - This brush guard is a different story. The first load I dumped and pulled away from I heard all this noise. It was the rear brush guard hitting my tires. How could Polaris not design for this? Has anyone else had this problem?
  • Nerf Bars - Another poorly designed accessory here. The driver side nerf bar fits perfectly with the lines of the machine. The passenger side nerf bar looks bent and sticks out. What am I missing here?
Those are all the accessories that I have purchased. Another problem I've had is the dump bed on my machine rattles and is very annoying...even with a full cab system.

Overall I am very disappointed with this machine. This is my third ranger and I believe it will be my last. In the time I've owned this machine it's been at the dealer more than it has been at my home. Also, since purchasing this machine about a month and a half about I've spent about 2k on it. I don't know what I was thinking buying this machine...can someone help me out?

Sorry to hear you're disappointed and frustrated.

I've done a few modifications to my Ranger to correct issues. I didn't expect it to have the fit and finish of my F250 as I use mine as a work horse around my property. http://www.rangerforums.net/forum/me...-albums14.html

I suspect your passenger nerd bar may not be aligned correctly. You may need to loosen the hardware to adjust or remove/reposition the nerd bar to it's proper alignment.

I would probably look at moving the windshield washer fluid tank and use a longer hose. I suspect the tank is evaporating(?). I don't have a 2014, but look at moving the tank and/or insulating it from the heat.

Otherwise, I like the sound of having a radio and I really like those front brush guards.

I'd probably trace down the source of the bed noise and use any number of options to mitigate the cause by using foam weather stripping, rubber insulators or such methods. It's too difficult to diagnose without being there.

One thing you could try for the bumper rubbing is to reposition the rear shocks to raise the bed. That may provide enough room to prevent the rubbing.

Don't be too discouraged. I'm sure you can figure out a resolution to most of your issues.

yeah the Wiper Kit messes up the Cabs easy on/off function XD at least the doors still come off easy.

havent' had any washer fluid issues on mine. still have half a tank from when I got it.

the bed rattle/noise is probably because of the latchs. mine rattles from this spot as well. some people just put a small notch in the frame where the latch touches. I'm just dealing with the noise myself. there's also a couple of topics floating around here about this fix squeak.

2013 900 crew cab sqeek

Mine squeeks on the left and right side at the roof where the two bolts connect the metal plates of the cab together. had to loosen them and put in nylon washers spacers to fix the problem. You can shoot it with WD 40 to stop ( or find) the scqueek but to fix it permanent, insert the washers.

So many problems

I feel for you bro. So much money and just so many problems to get resolved by the dealer. If this is your 3rd Polaris, you should know what to expect by now. Get your wrenches out and start wrenching on it.
