Grub screw wasted in Gear Lever Cofle


Go to solution Solved by PJ,

Recommended Posts

  • Solution

In an effort to chase perfection I've made an error and broke the top screw in the Gear Lever that shifts into reverse. Drilled it out but need to alter as a screw doesn't hold anymore. Is this pin removable and to be replaced? Can I take it out to the top? I've seen both top and bottom of the pin is steel but in the middle it's like threaded steal. Any ideas? I've seen the following on  DeRoure but not 100% sure if it is the same and how to replace, part 39

Update: My Lotus dealer is kind enough to have me drop in last minute tomorrow morning and see if they can fix this. I'm sure Jan has a way and I'll update on a fix (hopefully 🤔)...

Thanks. They were able to switch it out with another one they had laying around. I wasted the thread too much but Jan will probably be able to save that for a future save, for someone else of course 😂🤣...

@ramjet   Considering placing on the Earth, to you it is already upside down.

 

@PJ I'm sure they can fix, if not then perhaps a heli-coil will return it to a workable threaded hole. Hopefully all solved by now.

Well according to PJ above, they have fixed it, so my idea must have worked.

Glad to have been of assistance. (not just a pretty face)
