Hi Chas

I just wanted to say many thanks for sending the part - thats a beer I owe you !
Is there a knack to getting the circular cap on the wheel which ever way I wiggle the trim I cant seem to get three holes to line up to click it in
Cheers

Hi you may find that the little pips on the wheel that hold the alloy cog on have been worn down a little just try and use one hole on the plate to see if the pips have a lip on them if so use a file and just file them down so the plate fits over them ...let me know how you get on
