Don't know, but I think I have at least one (possibly a pair!) of Series 1 headlamp washers that I could post you to look at, if you wanted? Don't know if they work. I don't have the right bumper for them but they came off a 1990 car I broke ages ago. I think they're made of nylon and swell when they absorb water (perhaps not the best material selection for a washer jet!) so they were famous for sticking. I assume these ones will be similarly sticky. Anyway, if I can find them, you'd be welcome to have a look if you're happy to cover the postage. Just respond to the thread or PM me an address.

Hi Ian

I need the complete unit proud of the bumper. All I have is two rectangular holes in the top of the bumper. The parts within the bumper itself appear to be intact. My enquiry was prompted by the eBay offer of a complete facelift bumper. Hence are they the same as the original model?

I will take some photographs of the bumper sans washers at the weekend and if you think you have a solution I will be more than glad to pay postage for the parts.

This of course all relates to the TB which I am gradually getting to know. So far I rate it as fast as the QV but lacking the taughtness of the chassis and handling. Generally a bit untidy on the road with a higher lean into the corners. Acceleration in mid range is astonishing - the g force does actually push you back into the seat. Much work yet to be done.

Will get it up to Cumbria one day for your approval.

Kind regards

They could be the same but knowing Alfa I doubt it. The pipes also go brittle with age, as I discovered while trying to salvage some from a series 2 front bumper. Fine as long as not disturbed but be really careful/gentle if you do.

Suggest buying a complete front bumper and gently taking them out yourself. Bumpers only go for about £20 and make handy spares in case of any incursions into the undergrowth, etc. Or give an alfa nutter like Eddie at the Alfaman in London a call. Probably have the parts in stock.

Good luck :)

My apologies - couldn't find EITHER of them in my pile of junk! Will look again in a few other places when I next get the chance, but time has beaten me on this occasion.
