Boot Roller Cover

Just ordered a used spare as my cover is ripped where the centre metal bar fits in the recess tried glueing then double sided tape. Then taped over the top and now it won't roll up properly so ordered a used replacement.

Is it easy to fit looks like just two bolts one either side holding it on. Is it as easy as that or is there anything I should know before I try the replacement.

Suppose this is a common problem over time as the cover is not particularly sturdy

Thanks
CJ

It has been a while, but I believe it is as easy as that!

Roller arrived appears to be in good condition and has been fitted. Guess this is one of those items that does wear over time and needs to be treated with care.
