Windscreen Wiper Clips


The windscreen washer tube on the drivers side of my Spider has come loose. It seems that the clip that holds it in place has snapped...does this mean a new wiper arm, blade or tube? Or is there another way to rectify this?
The passenger side tube seems to be held in place with 2 clips, but the drivers side one only has 1 clip, is this normal?

Any pointers gratefuly received.

Re: Windscreen Wiper Clips

Hi Paul,

The wipers from Alfa actually come with the clips, they're VERY reasonably priced too. I'm sure they were less than your local spares place such as Halfrauds! I had the same with mine when I got it, but the blades were worn anyway. I kept the old clips for spare as they are quite fragile.

If the rubber isn't great then may be worth just getting yourself a new pair?

Re: Windscreen Wiper Clips

When I bought my GTV the washer jets were held on with black cable ties. This wasn't too bad, but I wanted the car to be original, and right.
I ordered from the link below, taken from another thread:

They arrived the next day and are great. Wipers work great, they're the original Alfa part (they even say Alfa Romeo on them).

The idea of keeping the clips from old one is genius, as I even managed to snap a clip on mine whilst changing them.
They work perfectly though, but I will be taking a clip off them when I change them next.
£20 well spent to have sharp wipers with the correctly angled washers.
