I'm after a pair of retaining circlips that fit on the back of the radius arm stub axles. They are an obsolete part and it's impossible to get new ones. Rolling Eyes

Does anyone have a pair of circlips or even a pair of stub alxes with the circlips fitted?

Silly question I suppose what happened to the original ones? Minispares listed as out of stock but I expect you knew that already!

The radius arms i have are missing the stub axles and hence missing the circlips.

Maybe I'm thinking too laterally here but have you tried an engineering suppliers - surely a circlip is either internal or external and then just variations on thickness and diameter.

Even Halfrauds do them - http://www.halfords.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/product_storeId_10001_catalogId_10151_productId_256951_langId_-1_categoryId_165562

Not sure they are. Are you not thinking of David Manners ?

Anyway. If you can size up the parts, there are still a few good engineering merchants round here....in Oldbury.

James,
Pop into Charnwood Fasteners on the Cumberland Trading Estate. If they don't do them they will probably know someone who does. It's run by a couple of old guys (one of whom can be quite grumpy sometimes!) but they're brilliant for any kind of fixing you need, in any quantity and are very well priced. Ean Muller who is a couple of units down might also be able to help.
Charlie

Ps: Another catalogue of standard sizes here (though knowing BL they probably used a none standard size Sad) http://www.calebcomp.co.uk/catalogue.html
