tow hook loose
The tow hook/seat clamp on my 140 is loose. Is it supposed to be like this? I had a quick look and took a nut off/tried to tighten it but stays loose still, it moves around even with seat on it. Any suggestions?

Perhaps some of the plastic is cracked. Take the grab bar off completely and inspect.
Make note of how the seat stud is positioned so you can put it back together correctly.
SpannerSpencer documented his modification to relieve stress from the plastic at the tow hook mount.

i took it apart and found that the metal part that connects the plate to the tow hook snapped. Easy fix, had it stainless steel welded and is now stronger than before.
Easy fix, I think I will tackle that reenforcement project spannerspencer did.
Thanks for the help!
