I have seen in one case in this forum were a owner has had this same problem and was out of the 3x36 warranty and there dealer took care of them. Is there any other owners out there that this has been taken care of outside of warranty. Really this can be looked at as a safety issue.Problem is it falls on the bar. Stay' s in the clip just fine. Oh well, I guess I'm back to the 800 number first and go from there.
