    Hi All, I picked up on Ebay a cargo cover for my 245, and the problem is
    that the tensioner does not seem to be working right. The plastic ends have
    a slot (about 60 degrees) from which the cargo unrolls, I rolled this cargo
    cover both ways, so that it unrolls from the top or from the bottom on the
    slot, but there is no tension to retract it back. I noticed also that the
    ends have a play inwards to fit in the endcaps, but was wondering if I
    should be pressing the endcaps in when winding this thing.

    Any information on how this works would be gratly appreciated.

    Thanks

    Arnold,

    I know it should roll from the top. I don't know how to wind it though. I
    could investigate with mine but I am afraid I might unwind it!

    Good luck.
