    ISO 1(one) Yakima Q Tower

    While trying to put longer bars on my car, I broke one of the Q towers. The filmsy plastic cover snapped off while I was trying to close it. It should still be under warrenty, but I have no idea what I did with the receits. Would hate to have to buy a pair if not needed. If you have an extra Q tower sittting around I'd love to take it off your hands. Will compensate fairly. Please email me at: benfrench AT gmail DOT com. Thanks

    Which plastic cover are you referring to? Have you tried calling Yakima directly? If it's a part on the Q-Tower that looks like it can be replaced, Yakima should be able to send you that part for a nominal fee, if not for free. When I spoke to Yakima about warrantying a part of my Steelhead, they just asked me when I bought it. They didn't require a receipt.

    I also had to bring in another Steelhead for warranty at REI. They keep everyone's purchases on record so I didn't need a receipt. I traded in the Steelhead and upgraded to a Viper instead.

    Why pay for new stuff when you don't really have to?

    If you don't find your receipts and still need a part, e-me. I have a couple of Q-towers which got tweaked in a bike-meets-garage door incident. I don't remember if the covers are intact, but I'll take a look. kts at columbia dot edu

    Look where you want to go. This is as true in life as it is in mtbiking.
