    I got a shipping notice too. I emailed her that you and me had swapped. I guess we’ll have to ship it right back.

    Hahahaha! And you specifically sent a message about it. I just figured that I was totally forgotten and didn't bother. I did send a reply to the shipping notice though as I don't want to get rung up for the cost of a cover or some such.

    Top bolts not even close to lining up, unless like others pull/force pillar to windshield which leaves you with gaping gaps like @tonered

    you said you were able to bend bracket by hand? I put the bolt in and used it to flex but not much movement. Guess I’ll have to put more elbow in it. I’ve already shaved/trimmed/sanded down the edges of both covers, added a few 5-6 strips of duct tape to make the cover sit more flush with the handle. I’ll have to take a picture when I bend the bracket next time.

    As did I. When I checked the tracking, It showed it originated in my home town awaiting package, I suspect it is the return shipment label for the damaged handle.

    Hahaha! That would be hilarious.

    Yeah. Mine bent without much force. I was hoping it would take much more.

    Pics are always good. Something that I don't do often enough.


    I bet that is the deal. A bit of communication would got the distance hear.

    In all transparency, I did get a text from Brian that said a return label would be included with the exchange part.
    But when I got the notification from USPS about two tracking numbers, "I never made the connection". When I opened the tracking histories, it clicked for me.
