    Vxr front door rub issue

    Did a search and didn't see a thread for it. When I open the front storage compartment the front tip of it rubs on the paint. Before it made it through the paint I put a piece of vinyl on it to keep the paint safe. I know my ski isn't the only one with this issue. Anyone find a fix for this or is keeping a good strip of vinyl on it only thing I can do for now?

    Are you talking about the tip of the hood onto the hull? If so just loosen two hinge bolts and move door aft then re tighten . Ck clearance with latch. But first double ck hinge to hul bolts are tight ......

    Mine already rubbed some paint off but you can't see it as it is under the hood

    Mine does as well, only see it if the hood is up! After seeing the thread im going to take it back to the dealer see if it’s under warranty.

    I caught mine early so it only scuffed the paint. Saw another rubbed all the way thru to primer. Yea I was talking about the tip. I'd post a pick but it wouldn't show up probably.

    I know it's off topic. Yours is a vxs right? With that many hours have you had any problems?
