GTV 2.0 JTS

Bowden cable clips

Hi y'all... am having a nightmare trying to get hold of one of these little plastic clips..see attched pix.
Its a problem with a 2004 GTV JTS , drivers door mechanism. I got a new bowden cable, but found on closer inspection that the little plastic clip (shown here in grey) is worn and twists in it's housing when the door release is operated.
I've had several clips posted/collected only to find that the diameter of the hole designed to house that large hook, is too small for the job. (see the white clips featured here)...

Its driving me and my mechanic mate crazy...any ideas where to purchase?

TIA
Mike Croll

OK..thanks for reply Gazza.... but it seems the part I'm after is actually part of the lock mechanism itself... (see attached photo with clip outlined in red)...this holds the bowden cable to the lock itself....

I realise its a bit of a long shot asking for such a ridiculous item....

Hi Mike

The part numbers I gave is for that part you have highlighted in red.
If you ordered a NEW lock mechanism you would not get the plastic bits you want with it. Although a second hand one may if you are lucky

The 60583914 & 60583915 part are still used in Alfa Romeo, Fiat, Lancia and Dodge so I would assume you can by them from a dealer

Hi Henrik_45

EB Spares say they are no longer available from Alfa under those part numbers.
You are probably right that Alfa Romeo, Fiat, Lancia and Dodge as still using them but it must be under a different part number do you know what the equivalent part number is ?

Hi!... big thanks fir your help on these clips!
I actually stuck my request on Facebook (just fir a laugh) and a member in Lincolnshire came up with some clips he had knocking about .. I still can't believe my luck! The moment of truth will be Monday morning tho... so I'm keeping everything crossed ?.
Tell you what I also need... a pair of those rubber cups that sit atop the front suspension stancions.. any ideas?... there must be an after market part that'll do the job?...?
