but I find it impossible to remove the screws, due to their security head design, but can tighten them ok.

So if your ignition switch seems to wobble, CHECK those screws, your LIFE may depend on it.


Left handed drill bits are what you need. :wink: Centre punch the fixings and use a left handed / anti-clockwise drill and hey presto you can virtually spin the loose ones out with light drill pressure.

Hi folks. Get hold of some Nord-Lock washers for these bolts. They come in many sizes and prevent loosening of bolted joints and are used extensively across industry in safety critical applications. You can find them via a website called fastening-solutions.co.uk in the suppliers guide I think
