    Default rattling door card (screws spinning)

    Hi Folks.

    Wonder if anyone knows of any way to fix my little problem.

    Seems that the threads on the p/s door have worn, and the bottom screws that hold the door card on are just spinning, and eventually coming loose at the bottom, which is creating a rattle when driving, i.e bumps etc.

    I thought speed fasteners would do the job, but theres no lip to fix them onto.

    Mad to fix this as the Mrs not happy have to sit beside it.

    Thanks in advance.

    Will look for bigger self tapper and see if that works. Bloomin annoying.

    Don't think i'll go the glue route, could be a pain in the arse at a later date..

    The proper way is to nut sert (nut rivet) it and then put a bolt in.

    Got a few self tappers yesterday, which did the job, but this nut rivet is new to me. Never seen that before, I was actually thinking rivet, but didn't know about nut riveting.

    Thanks a mil for that.

    Now onto flea bay to see if i can pick one up.

    Thanks again..
