AGGGGHHHH How hard can it be?

All im trying to do is get a small piece of silcone tubing that runs from the windscreen wash bar under the bonnet. Local car spares shop does nt have it, EB spares or Alfaholics dont have it. Im not trying to launch the car into space i just want a little piece of f***ing rubber.......... Grrrrrrrr

Re: AGGGGHHHH How hard can it be?

Managed to order it from another dealer for £4.50 +VAT.

rafe005....You are right in sure they would have it but i want a quick fit today.

Cant believe its so hard to get and that independant specialists dont have something so simple.....shameful

At least you got it. But for future, the pipe from pet shops is about £1.99 a metre and takes seconds to fit

TBH i'm sure its the same stuff anyway

Re: AGGGGHHHH How hard can it be?

The other dealer i ordered it from got me the wrong part. These really are hard to come by....ive called all Alfa breakers, loads of specialists.
FINALLY had luck at Autolusso. Only a silly little part i know but thanks Autolusso much appreciated.

Aye! Often you can find the part masquerading as something else. Halfrauds do pipe.. so do DIY stores.

Halfords do blue or red or black tube but with the wrong bore ID. I wanted it to fit in the clips and retaining part on the wiper still.
