Somewhere on the forum, a couple of years ago, I saw some had posted a "home" fix for the rachet mechanism. Photos were included.
I have searched and searched for the post.
Does anyone remember this and can you help me find it ?????

Slider Fix

Instead of doing that fix, just buy the upgraded slider for about $6. You have to take out the old one to fix it. The new one works great. I replaced mine a few years ago.

+2 I'm the one who did the modification and posted the pictures, with the new fix out that's the way I'd go to.

Is the upgraded mechanisms in the parts fiche on all wings or after a certain model year?
Same question:

What model years does this fix (upgraded part) apply to?

Please advise...

Sorry ... looks like my post was removed with all part information on the superseeded part number. Go to the parts fishe > windscreen > and it is part number #29 cam adjuster B 64543-MCA-000.

I think the superseeded part number started on the 05 models. The cam on my 04 with a build date of 01/04 fell out too.

Is this "#29 cam adjuster B 64543-MCA-000" the only part needed to do the upgrade or would additional parts be needed?
