Gene Cernan fixes a rear fender on the lunar rover during Apollo 17. Apparently, good ol' duct tape was the procedure for fixing such a problem. Without the fender Jack Schmitt was sprayed with dust.

Gene works to repair the rover's broken fender while Jack reaches the ALSEP site. The clip opens to show Gene tearing off a strip of duct tape from a roll and applying it to the fender. Jack asks Bob Parker if they can see him and Bob says "No," but a voice from the back room in Houston points out that he has just appeared at the left of the picture as a white spot in the distance. The EVA controller advises the flight director that Gene is now twenty minutes behind in his timeline. The camera leaves Gene at the rover and zooms to find Jack resting and evaluating his chosen ALSEP site area, the experiments package beside him on the ground. He discusses the site with the capcom, who informs him he is ten minutes behind in his time line. He picks up the ALSEP, moves it a few meters to his left, discusses experiment placement requirements with Bob, and the back room Experiments team reacts to his questions and remarks.
