thank you for the pictures! I'll keep looking at it. As the shop manual shows the hatch area has one bolt to something(?) to secure it.
if not, the clamshell vibrates badly.
There may have been a separate bolt, but if so, I don't remember it. And, my clam has no vibration at speed.
Are you referring to the one bolt shown in the diagram for step 2? If so, step 2 refers to the 2 bolts for the MC reservoir bracket.
"2. Release the M6 X 20 flange headed screws & washers (2) securing the hydraulic fluid reservoir bracket to the clamshell."
