I have noticed that there is movement between the mirage drive housing and the hull whilst pedalling.

This footage was taken on the 3rd time I have used the passport but I have noticed it since new.

It seems like a small issue but I worry that the continual movement will cause problems in the

I tried and got about 1/4 of a turn on each screw and they are pretty firm but there is still the same movement when pedalling.

Thanks

There is a just a bit of play in most of these. It doesn't really harm anything. Under pedal power the drive will be thrust against the hull and you shouldn't notice the play.

I only notice the play when under pedal power. My only concern was if it was not normal and may develop but if you think this is normal movement I am happy with that. Thanks.
