Hey-

Has ANYONE got this part (as missing from this picture) which is the hinged cover for the rear wiper arm-nut..??

I'd be very interested in coming to an arrangement with an individual who did...

thanks effkay-

could I ask you to take a couple of pictures of the bit I have detailed, please..?

I am fairly certain the arms are different between the 145.gif and 146.gif but I suppose it is possible that this particular part is the same...

(145's are a bit thin on the ground, where I live!)

thanks

Sorry, diditn realise it was a 146.

Better pics here - says 145/146 compatible for cars without rear pane washer/sprinkler, but seems short for the 146 at only 325mm:

This one seems more 146 specific and looks longer like typical front windows - seems to match the ones in photos of 146's:

ePer says

Part No. 60606905 for 146 rear wiper arm
It's not the same as the 145 so I'm assuming that there is a difference in length and it's more expensive

OK lads-

thanks for the info & advice.

As it happens, in the back of this, I have now ordered a complete rear arm from Nathan at Cloverbreakers for 20. And that'll be that!


I 'could' have lived without it, you know? But that's how the slow-deterioration starts isn't it? And I'm NOT going down that route!
