Lotus Elan

Anti-Rattle Clips

PostPost by: sveris » Sun Mar 06, 2016 7:56 pm


I haven't been able to find these for years, but finally ran across a couple of used ones that were not already damaged. Long story short, I'm selling reproductions now if anyone needs them.

These are the T-shaped clips for the door latch mechanism linkage rods – reference Lotus P/N 036 B 6155. Here's what they look like, with the repros at the top and the used OEM clips below:

Used 2 per door, so US$38.00 for a set of (4) - plus shipping.

Do you have a dieset to make these? I have a small electric punch press in Columbus if that would help.

I may need these on my +2S, but my Elans are S3 and I don't remember any such clip. I do need the little clip that retains the remote onto the lock spindle. I've never even found a number for that clip. I've had to use an E clip and a spring washer in its place.
