    Carbon glue?

    Hi,

    One of cable guide screw well nuts has detached from the frame of my RFX (carbon).

    What type of glue can I use to fix it back in?

    Edit:
    Will this do a good job

    Got an email of DT.

    This is exactly the stuff he has recommended, they do different versions. (he provided an image which I cannot upload on this forum)

    Also advice on maintainence from DT


    Periodically remove all the cable guide screws and grease the threads then lightly snug. This will make them easier to adjust / remove in future so less stress on the insert.

    DT:
    I KNOW this stuff works. This is the 'original' and it is better than the other formulas they offer.

    I used JB weld on an insert on my Czar, worked great, never had a problem again.

    Just be careful to protect the threads.
