    I'd be interested to know as mine occasdionally does it too. Generally it's fine though.

    Anyone?

    If you put an 1" of heat shrink tubing with glue inside ( electrical wholesalers should stock ) and heatshrink it on to the tabs of the roller and before it fully cools down and the glue sets put the roller into position and just push it a little into the slots to mold the glue/heatshrink. I haven't and a problem since

    I too got these from Audi as it too did my head in with the cover constantly opening going over speed bumps one of lifes little niggles but well worth buying and installing works a treat.
