The cap is lose. I press it down/in.. sits for a while, and get lose again.



How to fix?



Is it bad for the bike?.. Dust and water can get inside.

    thats probably the worst picture ever but if it keeps on popping out a blob of glue or silicon sealant will hold it in.

    just a small blob so you can get it out again.

    totes alts, windscreen glue - mouldable, easily removable, black so it blends.

    Your outer cable may be a bit too short, this would cause the plug to pull out when you turn the bars.
