Minolta CLE - wind lever cover missing....

Hi,

My Minolta CLE went in for a much needed CLA in the UK a number of months ago but unfortunately returned without the small round black cover to the wind lever (pictured).

https://www.dropbox.com/s/ctuegfyg6d...20cle.JPG?dl=0

The repair specialist insisted that the cover was replaced during the CLA and suggested that the issue was not at their end. I only noticed the cover was missing half way through running the first film so I have no choice but to assume that it must have "fallen off" during this time - even though it had fastidiously remained in place for a number of years before the CLA. I would normally argue the point here but they have made their position clear and, of course, I have paid for the work done before the camera was dispatched - as per their terms and conditions.

So - given that I am always hearing that these little gems are paper weights once they develop an electrical fault - does anyone have one of these that they would be willing to part with the cover?

No idea on the value of this but hopefully I can find one first and be open to offers.....

Thanks in anticipation,

James
