    Design fault hence being rereleased, closing off air vents on the shroud and fitting them to the backing plate. Its under warranty and a faulty design so they should swop out all those,its the ethical thing to do.

    Do you think it's ok to glue it back?

    If you glue it, it may happen again and this time damage your paint or worse yet injure someone. Contact Flex.
