Tow Hook Cover Mishap

Recommended Posts

Gents,

Had a little issue with the Aurion today. I was a lazy prick and decided that I would just head down to one of those "high pressue" car wash places to give the Aurion a quick rinse - as opposed to the full wash I'd normally do at home.

Anyways, once I got home and was drying her, I noticed that the cover over the front tow hook was missing. It must have come off when it was blasted with the high pressure hose (even though I've blasted that area many a time when washing her at home, but it's the only thing I can think of?)

My main concern is this: take a look at the photo's below - the right side of the tow hook surround looks like it's been snapped off ie: has a jagged edge - as opposed to the left side, which is neat and looks like the original moulding. So if part of the surround has been snapped, then I'm doubting that the cover will 'lock' back in to place (will have to wait until I can order a new one...)

Is someone please able to have a look at theirs and tell me if it's just meant to be that way, or if mine has definitely snapped.

Sigh...teaches me for being a lazy bastage!!

Thanks guys.

Just popped mine off and there is no jagged edges like in the picture. Looks like someone has jammed something in there to take it off before.

Cheers

I wouldn't be concerned about the jagged edges on it. The way the cover clips on it, that area will have no bearing on it. It clips on the outer edges only.

Thanks guys. That's a bit of a weight lifted. Went back to the car wash in an attempt to find the cover, but as expected, didn't find it. Looks like I'll be ordering another one.
