MG MGB Technical - Battery Box Cover

1978 mgb roadster

Some of the wire retainers in the holes where the turn screws fit have broken off.

What is the accepted way of fixing the battery box lid to the boot floor?

I don't want to use self tappers if possible as I would like to retain quick release to get at the battery easily to charge it etc.

Cheers for any advice


the wire retainers are avail new part number 7h9828

Thanks Ste

checked the number out on the owners club site and listed as a zeus retainer spring.

Not had a good look at the car yet - how are they fitted?

Just pot riveted in place so easy to fit
