But I could have done in the time it took me to put on a new rocker cover.
I'll go out and check it again later, to see everything is tight and nothing has perished. It didn't catch fire or blow up on the way home (touch wood), which is a new experience for me. It sounded well and drove nicely though. I'll post a picture of the old rocker cover and the nice little 'crack' in it later this week.
