This is driving me crazy. I've managed to lose the thumb nut that retains the trip meter reset cable to the dash panel. Does anyone have a spare they could sell me or tell me where on the earth I can find one? I believe it is a 14mm x 1mm. It is the switch nut that is low profile and generally tightened by fingers only so it is knurled not hex shaped.

Help!

Thanks

Go to an auto electric shop and check out the switches , probly have to buy the whole thing but more than likely there will be something to fit. ..... Boat shop , car / bike wreaker ?? :)

Thanks Mctool. I have tried looking into auto switches but so far nothing. A bike breaker is my next stop. Funny how these $.50 pieces can cause such frustration. I figured if it is just unobtainable, I'd have my machine shop make me one, for about $75!

I measure 13mm inner diameter on mine (18,3mm od, 3,65mm thickness). So M14x1 as you said. I`ll have to pick up some parts for my car today or tomorrow. If I have a chance I`ll drop by the hardware store and see what they have.


For the forum search engine: trip resetter, trip counter, trip meter, lock ring, knurled ring nut

The hardware store doesn`t have anything like that.
If found them on the internet tho https://www.cncwarrior.com/product-p/22905.htm
In case you order one would you order one for me as well?
May be a good idea to ask how thick it is first. Imo up to 5mm would be ok.

Okay cool. This is hugely helpful, thanks! BTW what's your tag? I have ordered a total of 4, I'm happy to send you 2 once they show up here and you let me know where to send them.

Cheers

That looks like the sort of thing found on a bicycle inner tube.

Same idea but different size. Meant to be tightened by fingers only just like on a presta valve inner tube stem.

Hi RMR,
problem solved meanwhile?
machining one of would cost less than $ 75. I can make you one for way less.
if you're interested, please PM me.

regards, Bertus
