2023 spark steering issue

I have a brand new 2023 seadoo spark and having steering issues. It is very hard to steer. Not like it needs lube, but feels like something is blocking the column. But, I can't see anything that could interfere. Moreover, it steers to the right somewhat ok, but barely turns left. I've tried adjusting the turnbuckle per the manual, but that does not help. Also tried lubing up the cable, nothing.
Any advice would be appreciated.

Update: I have figured out the issue. The steering nozzle is held in place with 2 bolts and 2 plastic bushings. Both of those bushings got snapped, so the steering nozzle popped out of it's sockets. Should be an easy fix, bushings are 10 bucks each on amazon, nozzle itself is a bit scratched up, but seems usable still. Writing this in case anyone else runs into the same issue.
