Chrome Wiper Wheel Box Nuts- Fits MG & TR’
If you are planning to install a new wiper bezel kit (listed above) you should order new chrome nuts too.
The nuts are not included in the kit. These nuts have an awful tendency to seize onto the wiper wheelbox threads! Here is my advice: Cut thru the side of each nut with a grinder or hacksaw and then break them off with a hammer and chisel. The threads on the wheelboxes are extremely fine and I don’t know where you might find a die to clean them up.
If you simply try to undo the nuts with a ¾” wrench, you will bend and kink the wheelbox tubing underneath the dashboard#$#&^$$…
After breaking off the old nut(s), you can wire brush the wheel box threads to clean them up.
A little smear of anti-seize compound should then be brushed on, prior to screwing on a new nut.
These are eight sided, chrome nuts.
Fits any TR6 or Spitfire. Also fits 68-80 MGB or Midget.
TR’s need two nuts and MGs need three.
