Turned out both of mine had it - wagon had loose lines as well

My problem now is the bushes on the rack itself - rack has 2mm wide clean patches on each side where the rack is shifting

BE VERY GENTLE. Don't overtighten.

My first car had a line fall off, I know 3 or 4 people locally affected.

On my new car and TT_TTF's car we both had loose fittings which I tightened. It isn't much, basically about 1/8 of a turn to take em up.

But given vibration, the pressure they're under, they eventually do "undo".
