    2018 RXP: How to adjust the front storage compartment cover

    I am frustrated by the very poor assembly quality on my new ski. The front storage compartment cover is so crooked that it actually hits the left mirror when you try to shut it. Does anyone know how to adjust the alignment on the hatch?

    This might help. It's not exactly a service manual but it does cover hood removal. Scroll down to "manual" and click.

    Open the hood, remove 4 bolts in the side that releases the front upper cover. Slide the upper cover towards the front of the ski and you'll see either two or four bolts and then two more under the handlebars to loosen so you can make an adjustment.

    It is spring loaded so you'll have to kind of pull the handlebars down and push fairly hard.

    It's easy, I had to adjust mine, my wife's was perfect and didn't have to slam it to close it.

    Just get the dealer to do it with the first service. It is a known issue.

    I had heard about it prior to pick up and just requested that they make any required adjustments before I got it. My lid shuts quite smoothly now.

    I did have an issue with the glove compartment. The lid was set too low, or recessed too far back, depending on how you look at it. The lid caught on the body at the back when it was trying to open. I had to press on the body to give it clearance.

    Again, adjusted at first service. No biggy.

    TT dealer and he said that he spoke to the shop and they have had no RXPs that needed it adjusted. They also had no advise on how to do it.
