Default 5th bow bungee

Anyone have experience with the new 5th bow bungee kits?
I've replaced these on 2 other roadsters.
The new kit is unlike the old and is the only one you can purchase fro Nissan now. Part # 971F61ET0C
Nissan provides no instruction how to retrofit this new bungee
Anyone have a 2018 or up FSM that could take a look and see if the new procedure is in it.
I'm getting no assistance from Nissan.
I'll try to post a pic. Old bungee on right, new on left.
Thanks

Sorry I have no helpful information, but I had mine replaced last month...does that mean I got the new one? The tonneau still hits the rubber molding on the bottom of the roof..

Unless a dealership has an old version laying on the shelf youll get the new version. It should have fixed yours?? The 2 Ive did previously fixed the problem with hitting the cover and the loud snap when closing the top

Well, it did fix that problem...it is a soft hit on the rubber only now.
