      While checking into a hotel last summer, some kids running around the lobby
      bumped into my luggage cart knocking my 897D that was in a tight fitting
      case to the floor. I didn't notice any damage until I noticed that the face
      was loose. I removed the face to have a look and found that two of the 4
      plastic tabs holding the face on were broken off, there was also a small
      crack along one side. I ordered a new face plate from Yaesu , at a cost of
      $35 to fix the problem. It took about 15 minutes to install the new face
      plate , no big deal.
