The Capri Club were looking at getting the sunroof handles remanufactured. I don't know what's happening with that, it might be worth giving them a call to find out.

My sunroof went funny in August and I left alone until Tickover could look as it went really stiff just on closing when fully opened and I did think the Handle could snap . But tickover said they can jump a tooth that knocks them out and that’s when the Handle Can snap . Works fine again after they tighten the Handle .

Chances are that if they do no one will want to buy them as they'll get accused of ripping people off as usual.

There’s only them , you and tickover that do Capri stuff after that it’s Bespoke what will cost so much . Why people moan about stuff from the CCI I will never understand . Also John Hill is 75 so just hope his son takes over .

I wouldn't let the voice of a minority speak for the masses Martin. I think the Capri Club is fantastic and the effort they put into remanufacturing parts is paramount and essential. I'm not the only one who thinks that I'm sure.

Unfortunately it appears to be a very silent majority.

That does seem to be true, perhaps people are afraid of being shot down. Or, as is the case with a lot of things, people are most vocal when they have something to complain about, when something is hunky dory the tendency is to not bother to praise.

The Capri Club are fantastic, we would all be worse off without it.

I couldn't agree more.
I've got no issues with buying parts from CCI. As you say, where would we be without the likes of CCI, Tickover and CapriGear?

I frequently visit the shows at their site and regularly purchase from them. Unfortunately many owners, some here, some on capri power and quite a few on capri world facebook have different opinions so instead of flying the flag or supporting the cause verbally/vocally, i do it silently im afraid as Martin has already mentioned.
