I pulled my grill to clean out

I pulled my grill to clean out all the dead bugs, and looked inside the tow hook receptacle. It was full of rust, there is no way one could screw the hook in. I've ordered a tap. 16x2 mm to clean it out, and will grease it up.
Just something else to check, all it would have taken at the factory is a spritz of lube to have prevented this.

My TR has a rubber plug that goes over the hole in the front spoiler, although it may not be "original". I don't see other TRs with one. Either way I like it cuz it cleans up the looks and keeps it clean in there.

Dave,

believe it or not in


Dave,

believe it or not in the back of the Owners Manuel it states that yearly the car should be inspected on the botton, (including the tow hook) for any scratches or abrasions, surface rust etc., and any and all deficient undercoating replaced or touched up along with the cleaning and servicing of things like rusty tow hooks you mention. Generally these clean and touch up situations would be handled by the servicing dealer.


Regards, JRV
