    I have a 90D with towing package (VIN 3xxx, April delivery). My dust cover looks different than what's in the manual and from pics I've seen like Bonnie's Sig 2. Did I get the wrong cover or did they update the design?

    That's what mine looks like too. I believe they swapped fastener after early builds.

    It must be an upgraded design. I must have an older one, because mine only has one fastener- which, by the way, is hard to use when trying to replace the cover.

    Are those pins easy to remove? They look like the ones holding the front -under-bumper cover which are not meant for frequent use. The original single difficult to use pin has a slot so it can be turned with the hitch key.

    I was told this is an updated design. The clips are not hard to remove, although require the use of a small flat screwdriver to lift the heads out of the fastener. This seems more secure than the single twist locking fastener.

    I keep a small flathead screwdriver with my hitch which makes the pins easy to remove.

    Yup. That's what mine looks like too.
