Re: Broken side door

@epiccave84036 - The side door is designed to come off and snap back on. If the hinge connector has snapped though, our team at https://gopro.com/help/ContactUs should be able to help.

Disappointed to be told that a broken clasp on side door is physical damage and so not covered on warranty . Surely the point of 1yr warranty is to cover hardware faults. Why shoudl i need to pay out £25 for a new side door if the plastic is likely to only last 6months
