  • Replacing pinwheel strip

    What is the best way to replace the riveted plastic pinwheel strip on Xli?
    If it cant be fixed with a hammer, use a bowling pin.

    Remove the old one first. Sorry, couldn't resist. What are you wondering about?

      Do I need to remove the plastic rollers or do I just put a little on at a time and rotate the pinwheel.

        Yep, you got it Clutch. Tap in place and rivet and then go a little at a time till you get to the end and then trim and rivet and you are done. Be sure you get it tapped into place good though.
