Does anyone know how to reattach a lever in the trunk for the helmet lock? Is there a rod or wire or something that may have fallen out to control it? Any help would be appreciated.

I have the plastic knob, but am apparently missing the rod that releases the helmet hook. Any idea where to look for these parts?

with any luck it may still be in the area under the trunk, remove the lower panel and see if it is there.

Hi, I have not had a chance to explore the problem, and I don't use the hooks much anyway. But I hope to get to it next month when my schedule eases. Good luck.

If I remember correctly, the rod pressure-fits into the knob, and the knob snaps into a plastic retainer when installed in the trunk. The lower rod end sits in a slot to turn the lock. If they are coming loose, it is because the knob is not locking into it's retainer. I replaced both of my knobs to solve the problem.

That is what I did also. Works good.
