    short term cable ties
    Long term GD do a repair for free with bolts but you need to pay postage to them @ £10-15 and they post back for free

    Mine has been “repaired” like that for about a year and half now. Works perfectly. I repaired it halfway up a climb in Machynlleth with just zipties, no araldite. Job’s a good un.

    I’d just cable tie it, maybe a spot of JB weld. Then when it needs a service send it back for repair and it comes back like new.

    Riding along and the post would not stay down stopped and discovered that the part came away in my hand…………

    so guessing that is not normal so

    what is the fix/repair/solution …if any?

    I posted mine back to the US and they fixed it for free. Plus they offer a rebuild for $18, which is great.

    When that happened with mine GD fixed it with the 4 screws but I had to pay $18 (£12) for a service. This was s
    around 2 months ago. Postage out to the States was £20ish with insurance. Once it got to GD they turned it around in 2 days, but I was without it for a fortnight. They didn’t charge for return postage.
