E85 headlight washer jet cover (near side)

Post by LordOxygen » Wed Aug 15, 2018 1:46 pm

I need a passenger side headlight washer jet cover, ideally in Maldives Blue but any colour will be ok if I'm not lucky enough to find a blue one.

I noticed this monring after my drive to work that its missing. God know how it happened, theres no marks or scratches on the paintwork and I didn't hit anything (that i noticed) on the way.

Pls pm me if you have a spare to sell.

Thanks
Graham.

They are fickle things. One day they just decide to get up and seek a new life away from the Zed they have been with since birth.

I was going to say that I paid c£20 from EBay when mine flew the nest, but there doesn't seem to be any around unless you pay >£40 for an already painted one. That said £20 for an unpainted one plus primer, paint and lacquer all added up to >£40 when I did mine.

I brought a replacement from this chap on eBay a few weeks ago:

https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre ... 2135645883

He does both N/S and O/S And checks the paint code against your VIN. The paint/ finish was excellent, and it was a brand new genuine part. Recommended.
