Do Not Over Tighten Freedom Panels !

Stopped by a local dealer and found the Freedom Panel Attaching Rod laying in the ashtray.It would not screw back into the Freedom Panel--The reason is that the threaded nut that is attached to a metal collar that is embedded in the panel was broken off from its collar mounting.Apparantly someone overtightened the screw post when securing the panel and broke the threaded nut weld...H

Hope this is just a case of misuse and not a flimsy design.Once the nut is broken off there is no way of putting in the screw post which might require a new panel.
