Runaway towing eye cover

  1. My model of MX-5 is: MK3.75 _
  2. I’m based near: Barrow-in-Furness
  3. I’m looking for technical help or recommendations on: towing eye cover

I have just lost the towing eye cover for the second time, so will be ordering another tomorrow.
Not looking forward to colour matching it.
I am therefore wondering if any of you good people have found a way to make yours stick around for more than 6 months?
I am contemplating string an duck tape for now, so that the cover hangs down if dislodged, rather than runs away, but has someone got a better solution?

Using a glue gun/araldite/sikaflex or similar, attach a tie wrap to the back of the cover and the inside of the bumper, so if it comes out at least it’s still attached. My last few BM’s had the same problem with them randomly disappearing until I did this.

The cover has a retainer on it so it hangs down when open!

The original cover that was on my car did not have a retainer, neither did the replacement part I got from MX-5parts, so I can’t agree with your solution.

Sorry the NC1 has a retaining strip

Gonna try to do this. Thank you.
