The cover on the spare doesn't stay snugly locked. I checked everything and it's all lined up, there's just no tension to hold that little switch locked down. Anyone else have that issue? The cover stays on just fine but it makes me nervous about any large bumps having it possibly fly off.

My cover has some foam spacers that keep it tight up against the tire. Does yours have spacers? If not, glue some foam in there.

What JuneBug said. Also, sometimes just a few packing foam peanuts placed strategically will work. It did for me.

On that little switch.......I assume it's a Limited and you're talking about the latch at the bottom? If so unlatch it and put a piece of small vaccuum hose on the hook portion then close the latch on it. Snugs it right up.
