So picked up my white sel about two weeks ago. While at the dealership I was pulling the tonneau cover back and it would stop about 2-3 inches from the tail gate. Felt like something was blocking it from going all the way back. Showed the salesman and we gave it a pretty hard yank and it slammed back and broke the little clip at the end of the rail. Brought it back the following week for the service dept to look at it and they found little clips on the underside of the cover were broke. He took one off and it seemed to work fine. Was showing a buddy of mine the truck the other day and it did the same thing again. Currently I am waiting on parts from Hyundai to fix the problem. Kind of upset that it makes the bed almost useless. Just wondering if anyone else has had this happen yet.

@cvorden Thanks for the info. Picked up my SC yesterday and noticed it was not rolling into and out smoothly. It did retract fully but the smooth action is not like we saw in the videos. Not sure if it takes time to loosen up or something. I'll be careful not to let it fly back into case which it seems to do at the last several inches of retraction.

Yea mine happened when I was pulling it towards the tailgate. It actually retracts ok, but it does not sound smooth like I thought it would.

I'm having the same issue...I also can't figure out for the life of me how to attach the handle and strap to the under side of the cover. It wasn't attached when I got the truck it was just thrown in to the under bed storage with the rest of the accessories. Anyone have any clue? I will have to the dealer look at the cover. I will say it's an intro intermittent problem at this time.

The strap screws into the white bowl looking thing just to the left of the locking knob.

Mine too. Used a dry PTFE spray lube and that helped a bunch. Still noisy, as it will always be, but at least it works a ton smoother. Didn't use Silicone as that stuff is really hard to get off completely and it contaminates and reeks havoc with any paint (if I ever need to get it repainted).

I

I'm confused....so I take the screw out of the white handle that the strap is attached to?
So underneath the latch on the top of the cover, there is a yellow locking knob. Directly to the left is a white plastic area. In that plastic area there is a bump, or what I called a bowl, that has a threaded screw hole. The part of my strap, not the one that has the cantilever on it, has a hole at the end of the triangle. That hole takes the screw that screws into the bowl area. Hope that helps. I don't know if I can post pics but I will try if that doesn't make sense.

So are you saying something like WD-40 Specialist Water Resistant Silicone Lubricant Spray shouldn't be used?

Mine didn't slide smooth either when I got it. Pretty sure its due to them cleaning and not re-lubricating. I sprayed some wax based bike chain lube in the rails and it slides smooth as butter now.

I sure wouldn't use silicone. I have have all of WD40's sprays as well as their WD40 DRY LUBE with PTFE and used that instead. I've done custom painting for years and I don't let ANY silicone around anything I intend to paint. If you don't ever think you'll need to repaint then it will work, but you just never know whats gonna happen in the future. Doing wraps, stckers or decals would be the same thing. Simply won't stick with silicone cause that's what it's supposed to do. Just like caulk. If you want to paint it read the label first. If it's silicone it says you can't paint it. WD40, everyone thinks it's a lubricant... It's not. The WD stands for Water Displacement and it took them 40 tries to get it right. True. Kinda went off on a tangent there, but you get the drift. 🤓

The rolling tonneau cover is going to cause a lot of headaches for Hyundai and SC owners. Problems with the plastic handle, too much friction on the rails, and rolling up/out issues after only a few weeks? Think what will be happening in a few years?

I read somewhere that accessories are only covered for 12mo/12,000 miles. Now, does the Tonneau Cover count as an accessory or as standard equipment since it's on the Maroney Sticker as part of the standard features and not a factory "add-on" like the Bed Extender?

The cheap aluminum carabiner that was on the strap to help anchor it to the side near the tailgate opening broke the first time I fully opened the tonneau. I was still at the dealership, and had just signed the paperwork.

I've since replaced it with one that can handle 3597 lbs of force. I'm fairly certain it will hold up.

The Roll-and-Lock tonneau site mentions to use 303 Aerospace Protectant on the rails to clean and lubricate. I tried this by wetting a microfiber rag with the solution and wiping inside the rails. The tonneau now opens and closes easily. Big difference.

Which one exactly did you use? there seems to be many kinds of that solution

Just got mine today and I did think it could be a lot smoother. I’ll have to look for that 303 and give it a shot.
