I already noticed, there is a small part in the middle of the rail.
Mine was also deformed and the passenger seat could not been locked.
But after some hassling it ' healed ' itself.
I will have a look at it. No Mud flaps for my 90.!

Received my recall letter today, it’s going in next week for its 2wd warning, will see if the dealer mentions it. I knew over a month ago, thanks to Topix, it was recalled.

It’s in for the day, it’s actually going in for the 2wd warning that keeps appearing on the dash, the seats are an additional treat Rolling Eyes 21MY Defender 90 D200 S, Tasman Blue, Fuji White roof.

Had mine in for the same 2wd Fault "OK to drive with Caution, 2wd only, Traction Reduced". Software updated manually by the dealer as SOTA doesn't seem to be having the desired effect. Fault occurs the day after it leaves the dealership. I know exactly where it will come on at two points on my route to and from my home and business. The 1st point is where the road has been resurfaced and there is a join in the Tarmacadam, barely noticeable. The second place is on a small mini roundabout where I have to apply full lock. Guaranteed every time at both spots. 2021 90HT Fuji with Black Pack, 22" Sawblades

Rolling Eyes Sounds promising

It won’t perform a range change whilst the warning is on either. 21MY Defender 90 D200 S, Tasman Blue, Fuji White roof.

Surprise, seat runners out of stock Rolling Eyes

Over night stay at the dealers to get tow hooks fitted, originally quoted £52.80 which I thought was cheap, now £281. I’m not sure what they thought I wanted fitted Laughing 21MY Defender 90 D200 S, Tasman Blue, Fuji White roof.
