Wheel Bolt Covers


Recommended Posts

Right ladies and gents i have two of my wheel bolt covers come loose after having a CV boot change, they were always a bit wobbly on the front whereas the rear are tight.

How can i reattach these bolt covers and is that even possible? what is the best solution here, new bolts? There are alot of bolt covers on ebay but how would i go about removing the other covers if i were to buy a new set of bolt covers that are of a different colour?

A strong glue should do the job

As long as your wheels aren't on and off that often, it should hold onto the wheel nut easily

In work I use mitre fast (or mitre mate) a lot and it seems to stick pretty much anything I've tried instantly and is pretty strong and durable

Oh yeah i know that stuff, i too use it for work, is there any other glue that will work? i'm not sure how well it will hold on metal

Loctite do a sort of superglue which is very strong but I can imagine it being quite pricey compared to mitre fast

The only other sort I could recommend are 2 part epoxy glues

Mitre fast should be plenty strong enough tho, I've used it in work on metal parts of washing machines and it holds no problem

Thank you gents I will give mitre fast/mate a go first before trying other glue as I have it to hand already.

If this fails I will compare the other two glue to new bolts price wise

If you look on the edge of the cover there's little dents on each side. Place nut in the cover and use screw driver to tap the cover back on the nut. They are just pressed on to it.
