    Honda have issued the following TSB# HUK000000000591 dated 31-03-05 for all 2005 Model year MY05 BE1, BE3.

    Gap between the cowl cover and the windscreen.

    During the fitting of the front windscreen glass, excess adhesive protrudes from under the windscreen, creating a bulge. This bulge stops the cowl cover clips from engaging fully, allowing the cover to lift up and gaps appear between the cover and the windscreen.

    1 Glass adhesive application method has been changed.
    2 Cowl cover installation procedure has been changed.
