I wonder if this is a design problem from using a sleeker, lower profile hoodline on the existing Zeta chassis?
This sounds logical...
OK, back from the dealer... This is being covered, everything else looks OK. I am going to get some type of aftermarket cover that covers the whole "cap"... Or I may just silicone the cap onto the nut. Strangest thing, would have never thought it could happen but obviously the chance does exist... Check your caps!
Thanks
