The swinging cover over the ignition key broke at the little nub the screw goes into.
Anyone have any luck repairing (5200?) or replacing it?

The company that supplied those covers is out of business last I heard. Might be able to find some type of plastic fabricator locally to make a new one or just go to Home Depot and pick up a piece of plexiglass and make a new one. Alternatively you could you grind off the nub and maybe put a hinge on the top? I've thought about doing that to mine thinking it may work better.

I purchase some clear Lexan at Home Depot and traced the old one using a scroll saw, then carefully drilled the holes. I masked the edge on the backside and painted the outer edge black, then put on foam with adhesive along the edge. It works great.
