MG Midget and Sprite Technical - An Interesting Problem...

Hi everyone,

I just refitted my steering column and have come to refit the fascia surrounding it - the part containing the indicator stalk and wiring.

However, it looks like there's simply not enough space for it to fit - have I missed something? Can I shift something back or make more room somehow? What's going on?! I've posted a picture with this s you can visualise the problem.

Any help would be very much appreciated.

Looks like your column is(might be) in too far, but also the boss on the steering wheel can stop you fitting the cowl. I have the same thing with my sprite. I have to pull the steering wheel to romove the cowl.

Would putting your car the right way up, rather than on its side help?

Undo the bolts holding up the columb and then fit the cowling followed by reinstalling the bolts.

Heres is a tip...instead of the fiddle screws on the far back side

Use a long black zip tie...simple and easy and takes out all the fiddly cowling fits just under the dash so the tie is never seen
