: Originally the plastic tubes had little,
: thin, curved, spring clips on them. It
: sounds like you are missing those
: See the eBay link below. Look at the
: rear of the speedometer. You'll see
: the little (rusty) metal clips on the
: OD of the black plastic lamp holders.
: I don't know of anyone who sells the
: clips. You will have to improvise, buy
: a used speedometer to get the parts, or
: search thoroughly for the ones that
: used to be on your car.

: When I removed the speedo on my 65
: Spitfire “4” I had to detach the three
: little warning lights at the bottom of
: the dial.
: The black plastic light housings at the
: rear of the speedo “popped out” with a
: little effort. But now that I'm
: replacing the unit, they will NOT “pop”
: back in. They go in, but then flop
: right out again. I desperately need to
: find out how to get them to mount
: securely back into the three round
: openings in the back of the speedo
: housing where they originally were.
: At the moment I'm actually considering
: Gorilla glue or duct tape. Gotta be a
: better way!!!
