I'm still havent got my backside in gear and finished the build thread.. However here is a solution to the loose motor cover issue.

To fix it you simply need.

4 X 3 x 30mm machine screws (Button head)
4 X 3mm nyloc lock nuts.

When you get to stage 12 in the manual you want to ignore the placement of the 25 x 3mm screws (part no 125000480) and instead put the longer screws in the opposite way.

Like so




just check that the heads of the screws are quite narrow (hex screws usually are thinner)

Whilst screwing in the screws ensure that the locknuts are at the other side so they bolt together nice and tight.

like so



And there you go, nice and simple and tough as old boots.

BTW people have requested a replacement for this from Ansmann and they have always been spot on in replacing them. However, I would recommend doing this anyway, especially if you want to run hot motors.
