    One of the cage nuts that attaches the pedal support bracket to my firewall has lost one side of it's spring clip and won't stay in place. Anybody have a spare they want to sell or donate? I believe it's a 3/8-16 size.

    Thanks

    That sounds like a Lowe's or Home Depot part? They have all kinds of tough to find nuts and bolts. I'm not sure of the specific size but my local Lowe's has cage nuts in their specialty drawers.

    I just looked through my bins of goofy car parts, and didn't find any. I swore I had a few. Sorry. Maybe you can epoxy it on there. That should hold until you tighten it down.

    I checked my local ACE hardware, but none that size. Might cruise into "the big city" & check HD/Lowes.
    I see that's a wholesale price andrew; they probably won't let me buy it.

    Looks an awful lot like the ones we use in building computer racks for servers and such. Might be another option.

    Cheers,
    Doc

    Unlike the shock tower grommets ( that I still haven't found ). I will look at my donor and see if I have any that are worth using.

    Thanks for the help & ideas guys. I figured out a way to install the old ones, using my wife as an assistant. Normally she hates helping me work on cars due to the colorful language that's usually involved, so a nice dinner is in her future. And maybe earplugs....
