    Tried tiger seal myself. Didn't work but fcuk knows why as I'd happily tiger seal myself to the undercarriage of a jet fighter knowing I wouldn't fall off.

    Get yourself down to the dealers and buy the correct grommet and plastic insert clips. Cost pence and you can have both side fixings for around a fiver.

    well today i got my self a tube of tiger sealer and took the skrits off.I think some point in its life someone has added them as theres no clips etc just sealer and self tapers.So i took off all the old sealer cleaned it all down put the sealer on taped it on and put new self taper in so now i`ll just have to leave it till 2moro sometime to yake off.Hopfully it will hold
