Elise S1 Wiper R Clip Size...

Recommended Posts

So, I need to get a replacement r-clip for my wiper blade.

(Yes I did drop it into the front clam, somewhere. Thanks for asking.)

Anyone know what size it's supposed to be?

Look under the door hinge.  Or if you're really unlucky it stuck on the wheel arch liner above the mudflap.  If you had the bonnet open, it could be anywhere!

You can measure the size of the recess in the bottom of the wiper blade.  Just the length should get you the right clip.  They're pretty tiny, only a couple of cm.  Or measure the pin hole diameter if you have the tools to get it accurately.  Or measure the pin diameter, 6mm or so would take a 2cm clip, 8mm a 2.5cm clip, and so on.

If you're still stuck, I can go an measure mine, but it probably won't tell you much more.

I measured my R-clip at 20mm total length.  Without taking it out, the pin appears to be 5mm diameter, which would be about right for that length clip.
