Front Cover below screen cracked
« on: November 04, 2020, 08:58:02 am »
I have a 2018 AT with 20K km on the clock. Iím the only owner- fitted a Batzen screen raiser at 3K km. Recently noticed there is a tapering gap between 2 front panels under screen. On closer inspection noticed 2 cracks as circled in attached photo. Anybody else had this problem?

Those are not cracks. It seems the 2 panels are slightly pulling away from each other. Those are 2 separate pieces of plastic. The top one slides into 2 little slots where you drew the marks.

Werk jy nie?  :biggrin:

Was going to say the same thing though. Look like the cover is just separating. Maybe remove everything and refit again.
They tend to break lower down if you have a GPS on that bar

Thanks guys- you are right. There are 2 panels that slide into each other- alignment is not good.

Is your screen bracket not pushing against the plastic? Maybe check that your screen crossbar has not cracked underneath and pushing the plastics out of alignment.
