Hi All

 

Quick General Question, how / what is the best way to tighten up the switch bezels on the dashboard?  What do you use do do it that avoids damaging the switch  itself ?

 

Thx

In US, but suits the 6 indent bezels

or

 

 

can you make a twiddling tool by cutting a    piece of tube to leave two protruding  'lugs  ' to engage the slots in the nut ring

 

 

 

Haha. It would have to have the right girth to fit!!! 

 

Use this item as a recipe to make your own.  I might give it a try

11/16" 12 point socket seem to do the job

I looked at this but its not the right bezel type, mine have six "indents" around the side of the bezel

Casper -  the US version would not allow you to locate as the switch is in the way.

 

The Socket is a potential though - I think I might already have one - So will try and let you know
