Headlamp washer cover

Post by inkey$ » Thu Jan 14, 2021 4:07 pm

Anybody got a spare passenger side headlamp washer cover? Mine has disappeared. Diamond clip thankfully still in place, but coverless.
Its a longshot, but ideally in Monaco Blue, otherwise any colour and I’ll paint when it stops raining in 2024.

I'm sending a set to James, IAmOrion, so he can take a look whether it's something that can be 3D printed. So watch this space I guess? lol! Also depends on how quickly you want it!

Do these just clip on? Pull out diamond clip topped washer jet and reattach?

It’s like console covers, expensive for what they are. So a cheap 3D printed one would be much better value for money, IMO.

That’s if it works! Not sure if maybe there will be too many intricacies to replicate... again you’ll have to watch this space. Could be a while, I’ve misplaced the box so haven’t sent to James yet!

Yes, I think it's easiest to attach the diamond clip to the cover then pull the jet up and clip it on.

I bought a cover from Sopers last March for £15.52. They offered to paint it for £15 IIRC but I declined - and spent alomst £15.00 on paint! :roll:

It would be great if someone could 3D print them though as they seem tp go missing fairly frequently, although they would still need painting. My solution for now is to pull Fuse 40 so they never operate - no streaks along the front wings any more. :thumbsup:

So its Fuse 40 is it? Once I’m sorted I plan on pulling it until MOT time.

Yes, I've removed it on both my last 2 Coupes.

I don't think you need them working for the MOT test if the car has Halogen headlights, and not with Xenons on cars registered before 2009. Although just to avoid any hassle I popped the fuse back in for my MOT last May!
