Hello,

Can anyone point me towards a source of 'Tinnerman' expansion nuts please?



They are used ins securing the bonnet release catch bracket to the vertical panel near the accelerator pedal.

Thanks

Mike Hooper

Not your brand name but this place has loads of weird and wonderful bits.

Sometimes I think laterally, but then I have to get up!

Sigh,

Still looking.

Other makes may indeed be available but an internet search showed 'Tinnerman' to be a close match.

I tried some plastic inserts from e-bay but they weren't strong enough.

In case anyone's in the same boat, I think I've found a solution:

Mind, I've had to buy 100 of the things. As I only need 2 I should have some spares. Maybe it'll be better to send me a message first.
