BMW System Luggage

Had a shock in the week when pricing up the handle unit for my BMW topbox - £118 or thereabouts excluding lock barrel.

The problem I was having seems to lie in the handle being wrenched up whilst it was still locked. Not by me, so I can only assume by some thieving scum. I've not had anything nicked though.

I looked at simply buying a new box and bid on ebay only for the seller to cancel the auction.

So today I had it to pieces. Three screws to remove the lock barrel. Couldn't see how the handle "friction" workd. Took the other side off... Can't see a prob there either, but did have an R shaped spring pop out. God knows where it came from!

Reassembled and it seems fixed. Oh well.
