Squirt some automotive seam sealant in to stop you rattling like Steptoe's wagon.

Don't do this, or any other bodge like 'colourtech' did for my Ti frame, which was spray expanding foam into the tube to stop the rattle. Do a proper job or get a proper job done, you'll regret it if you don't.

FYI, enigma sorted the aforementioned bodge - they had to increase the size of the head tube weld vent hole, but they did, and a cracking job too, can't recommend them highly enough based on my experience.

I did manage to fix this on an aluminium frame. Got a slim blade under the riv-nut, and pressure helped keep it in place while I span the bolt out. Might need a soak in something penetrating to ease the job a bit.
