Default You know you've had a bad day when.......

.......you are thwarted by the smallest of components.


I started with good intent to replace the absolute garbage front to rear pipework thrown at this particular car.

When I say garbage, I mean it, the pipework to the NSR was cable tied to the fuel tank support straps, and the complete numpty who had done the job had overtightened the flare nuts where they connect to the rear flexi.

So I've made a new set of pipes that fit the car, but need a pair of new spring steel clips

Now here is the crunch SGK100670 is NLA, so has anyone sourced a viable alternative?

Well I'm fairly reticent to pay £6.06 for one clip, so I reckon these will have to be tried for size......LINK



Now take a look HERE see the price, then look at what they're fitted to, I can't believe such a simple service item is not available from Rimmers.........perhaps nobody needs to change these ever

Ian, I bought THESE this morning, fitted them after it stopped raining 20 minutes ago, and I can confirm they are a perfect fit

Or if time is not a consideration, get them from ECP sister company HERE

Another workaround that isn't
