today my cover stuck in the cassette , yes I've had both bumpers off the last 2 days but I've not done anything to the cassette except move it out the way earlier. to free it i drilled the rivets out to poke about but nothing to be seen . i got it free but the spring action is no more , so can it be fixed or is it a case of get another one ? thank you in advance......

Never heard of anyone working on one before. It's based on a BMW part so might be worth trawling some of their forums to see if there's a fix.

Replacement ones are seen on ebay, though the ones with the cargo net tend to fetch a lot.

Hi Starbug.
It has been lifted someone must have offered a BIN price as it was only up £11.55 last night and early this morning i wonder if someone saw it on here and brought it, :confused: you can get this a lot once it as been showed i collect glass and it is deadly to put a link up as someone 85% time offers a buy it now price and the seller thinks they are getting a good deal but not always as some can go well over the asking price. Sorry just wished you had seen it earlier.

:lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: ignore me i clicked on the wrong link not the one i put up got quite :confused: :confused: got a fussy head :gmc: :gmc:

Would it be worth bringing to the July nano-meet to see if it could be repaired? If so it would be a useful 'How to'.

:cheers:
