Battery Update

Just had my 2.0 tranny update done as well as the battery replacement update. After coming home I always check out what was done. When I looked at the new battery I noticed that the breather tube was broken off. Obviously the new battery is a different shape, so when the tech placed the styrofoam foot rest back in he snapped it off by accident. I called the dealer & they sent a new breather hose. I had to carve out the styrofoam so it would not happen again.
Just thought it would be a good idea to pass this along so we don't get overcome by venting battery gases. Lets see how long it takes SMART corporate to figure this one out!

I checked my battery as well and sure enough the black fitting was disconnected from the battery itself. It didn't look broken or anything- I just plugged it right back in and it seemed secure enough. Anyone think there would be a problem with just taping or otherwise securing it in place so it doesn't come out again?
