Used my flex-fit for the first time recently, checked the lights worked on it, all ok but the car rear indicators and brake lights, except for the top LED one all stop working! Contacted dealer and was told that this was correct. I'm surprised as the flex-fit lights are quite feeble compared to the car's. Anyone else similarly concerned?
I have just noticed that my rear indicators and brake lights are not working, I assume that this has something to do with the flex-fit interface as the flex-fit lights remain operating with the unit stowed.
Will be contacting the dealership tomorrow.
As I have the flexifix, I noticed that as I had not used it often when I did pull it out it was very dirty and hard to extract fully I found after a quick wash and a spray of cycle lube it has been better since doing this.Michael I used the strap to hold the bikes on the extension together a bit more stable not sure if this is what it was intended for , have also bought some other straps just to keep all bikes from rocking a bit .
P.S. the last post re strap. Talking to my wife re the strap,nothing sadistic there by the way, she reminded me that we were told when demonstrated the other year that it was for attaching to the lever underneath to pull to angle the carrier down when loaded with bikes to gain access to the boot. Her memory is better than mine doh!!! I seem to remember it is on the video as well. Bassa
