More problems with glued on parts . . .
This time the large
rubber grommets that fit under the T160 instrument cups.
Once the rubber instrument grommets (97-5061) have
either worked loose, or if you loosened them to change the speedo or tach
cable, they never seem to fit back the way they once did. Here's an easy
method to keep them up against the instrument cup using a black plastic
Note: the original finish on these cups was
matt black. Some owners may have chromed the cups for a more striking look.
First you need to remove the old adhesive. Use a cleaner such as Goof Off,
work it in with an old
scrape it off with a straight blade or a gasket scraper.
If you think you'll be working back inside the cup again soon just use one
of the tie-wraps. Clip the tail close and turn it back, out of sight
behind the cable.
For a more permanent fix you can use a contact adhesive as well.
