The dealer found that the nuts inside the cross members are knackered and that to repair to dealer standard would require new cross members and an array of other minor parts - a bill totalling almost £400.
Now there is no way in hell I am paying £400 just to enable me to screw 2 bolts in!
However, as they have said it looks like it has been damaged by being removed/replaced in the past, and the only place which ever removed it was another dealer I use (who I might add had to remove it so much because they messed up a clutch change) I have contacted them and will be pushing hard to get some payout.
I also contacted Harmony Warranty and asked them about it. They said it isn't mechanical or electrical so it is a bit of a grey area but they will send someone to investigate.
In the meantime however, the dealer has cable tied it up to secure it.
Frankly, if I can't get the garage who I think caused it, or the warranty to pay out, then it can stay cable tied up for me!
