Any one know the secret to replacing the rubber Well Nuts that the windshield screws go into?

I've had a few dislodge and one torn in a effort to try to reinstall them in the holes.

Seems like it should be easy, but, sheesh, what a PITA

1) Screw the bolt into rubber well nuts before installing. Leave enough of the bolt to be able to grab the bolt but not come out of the well nut

2) If paranoid, tie string around bolt to prevent accidental loss

3) If you install the rubber well nuts too deep ... grab the bolt with your fingers and slowly pull back to get the depth and seating you need.

Prelube with vaseline? I'm serious.

I actually tried pre-lubing the little bastids but they slipped away and I had to spend an inordinate amount of time retrieving them from the body work.

Regarding Vaseline; Vaseline make rubber deteriorate. Sometimes quite rapidly. A fact that quite a few unplanned pregnancies may be attributed to.

Lubrication and having the length of the bolt screwed partway into the wellnut. Use a large washer (bigger than the hole) on the bolt so you can't push the whole assembly through the hole helps as well.
Don't try and push the wellnut into the hole at 90º but attack it at an angle, get part of the wellnut in and then gently work the rest in using small increments (and a small flat bladed screwdriver - or whatever you colonials call a screwdriver!). cheers

Cheers,

Thank you. That's the technique I needed to hear about.

Tim,
If you pay my air fare and four weeks hotel bills I'll come over there and help you install the screen (I'll even bring my own screwdriver).

Glad to be of assistance.

Cheers,
