Wiper box support brackets - Help please


Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

 

I can't seem to find my old wiper box wheel brackets (photo thanks to Antonio).

Would anyone know where I can get replacement and if not maybe measurements to make up a few?

 

Cheers

Hi Vin,

 

Coincidentally, I stripped my wiper out this weekend. The two brackets you need are :

 

1/4" thick mild steel

Short leg : 35mm

Long leg : 50mm

3/16" hole drilled 1/4" in from each end.

Bent at an angle of 53 degrees (I love iPhone apps!)

Jon.

Oh, and for those interested, the wiper wheel box (B076M0309F) carries a Lucas part number on it of 72933, which is also known as AAU6865 and is common to the Triumph TR7/8. 

 

I know this because I had to grind off the retaining nut to get it out and its in pretty bad shape so a new one was required. Courtesy of eBay..

I know there should be a large spacer between the box and the fibreglass (mine was missing, but it's visible in your first pic) and a smaller rubber spacer on the top. I believe also some kind of bezel too. Mine were missing so no pic I'm afraid. The best reference I can find is the S3 parts manual which is far more detailed than the S1/2 manuals. Copy on the S1/2/3 Yahoo forum in the 'files' section if you are a member there too.
