Re: cover for cargo area snafu
Are you speaking of the end caps on the cover mechanism? That is the only think I can think of because the cover itself sits in cradles that are on either side of the compartment.
Sounds to me like you should not be trying to make the cover work, but should be getting a warranty replacement as this one sounds flawed. I seriously doubt that the cover has been abused, so warranty should replace it no questions asked. Don't delay on this should you be close to the end of your warranty.
