Elan +2 Wiper rack tubes

Hi I need a set of +2 wiper rack tubes, preferably in the UK.

This is now getting urgent as the wiper system needs to go in next

You can use the ones from many other Lucas wiper supplied cars. You may need to cur and flare a bit, but readily available at the wreckers.

That's the issue - I have no idea of the lengths and I don't have a flaring tool of the right size.

Buy a flaring tool then when you need to do your brakes in Kunifer tube you are all tooled up.

where in the world are you ? [if you needed temporary loan of a tool]
as mentioned, flaring with a tool isn't too tricky. If you are still stuck , have yet to fit my dash , so can measure.

the final length may require adjustment [this is what I had to do] if you have fitted new wiper wheel boxes as there was a difference in width of my replacements (purchased 20+ years ago) and the OE items.
If slightly oversize the bends can be tweaked to make it fit

Hi,
I made some for somebody on this forum who then failed to pick them up.
If they are still in the garage you can have them but might take some finding

Regards

Do you have the 'other parts' and just need the bundy?

I've measured mine, the RH section is curved and the end is masked by the fixings but they are about:
RH (curved) 46cm
Centre section 38.5cm
LH part 6cm

Bundy is cheap enough so, if you buy a decent length of tube, you can do a bit of trial and error.
