New wheel pant?

Recommended Posts

Line guys at my FBO accidentally damaged my nose wheel pant, and now they get to replace it. Where does one get a replacement? Direct from Flight Design?  I emailed FD USA and they said they would contact FD, however the response time is pretty sluggish so far so I’m wondering if anyone is aware of any other avenues?

 

Thanks

They won't shake if you remove the rubber from behind the screws and just use large 1" flat washers on the other side of the pant. Do it on all wheels. Tighten them down well and the pants will not shake. Leaving the rubber in there or allowing them to shake or move will cause the screw threads to act as a file and enlarge the screw hole until you need to fix it.

Yes I've tried that.  Still got the shakes :(   Not a lot to be concerned about however, on those awesome buttery smooth no wind days I can feel the slight shudder in the cabin.  I will try tightening them again- thanks

Bob at Zone Aviation in Cleveland Ohio has spare wheel pants.

Thanks - I connected with Bob and this was very helpful.
