    Default Them small bushes. Dealer told me to sit down!

    Morning All. Called dealers yesterday looking for the wee bushes that fit into my Engine cover. Old ones were starting to fray, thus causing the cover to rattle. Called dealer and told him what i needed. This is how it went.

    Dealer - And i quote""
    "Think you better sit down mate, €15.00 for 1, Yes i said 1. Would you like me to order 2 for you"

    ME
    "Na. Your okay. Off to the scrappies i go then lol. Goodbye"

    Before i hit the scrappies, wondering if anyone has a work around or a mod to stop the engine cover rattling.

    Picture of what i need is below in yellow.

    Cheers,
    Murdo

    Wrap electrical tape around the metal ball that the rubber cup fits onto?

    Electrical tape might be an idea. Just wondering though. Would engine heat melt the tape after a short bit. Gonna take a spin to the scrappies and see if any lying around.

    I'm sure you can find a suitable rubber grommet at your local DIY store.

    Agree. May be worth looking into. Waiting on a mate of mine from the scrappy to see if anything lying around.
