    Hi all!
    I'm relatively new to the Roadster family and this forum, having purchased my '10 2.5 Sport a couple months back.
    In general, I absolutely adore the car and how it drives.
    But one thing that bothers me (other than the awful factory Alpine headunit of course) is that my fuse box cover keeps flying off - usually at the most inopportune times.
    Any tips/hints on how to get it to stay in?
    Maybe I just need a new one?

    Thanks in advance!
    John

    Sounds like the screw just isn't turned. It's not a pop in - there's a flathead screw that needs a quarter-turn.

    Hi John,
    A flying fuse box cover is a great excuse to purchase a new roadster!
    ;-)

    Ah, thanks! That would indeed be a problem! Will take a look tonight and see if I can find a flathead screw to match.

    It's not actually a screw, but a retainer. It turns 90 degrees to lock into place.
