Hello there, I have had a towbar fault while trying to retract my electric towbar. I decided to just leave the towbar out which worked fine for a few months
But I have an intermittent fault now with the towbar out which is very annoying. The fault clears every minute or so and then happens again. The fault is "towbar not locked ". Any ideas of a fix? Thanks in advance.

Typical problem is failed plastic gear in the motor gearbox moving the towbar. It can be repaired with more durable metal gear.

Where can you get these parts and how easy is the fix?
Got a red flashing light on the deployment button tonight when I tried to fold it away :(

A friend of mine has these produced. The latest version is structurally even better and made out of titanium. I can put a picture here later. If you are interested in these I can work as a middle man.
