    Hey all

    I just installed my pl8125, which is the internal electric pop n lock. At first I thought it to be broken as it locked, but wouldn't unlock. Upon closer inspection what was going on, is the guide piece for the locking rail was really tight on the rail and it was having a hard time, but making slow progress each time it tried to unlock. After working it back and forth a few times it now locks and unlocks both in one motion, but can any p&l owners out there let me know if this is normal?

    I shot it with a little silicone spray to help it along, I'm just not sure if this is normal or not. Thanks!!

    Eric

    If you call them they will tell you to open the tailgate up and put white lithium grease all over the slide piece. Had the same problem but since putting the gease on it hasn't stuck in well over a year
