Wiper spindle rubbers SE4 and SE5

Post by roymck » Fri Oct 07, 2011 3:12 pm

These seem to be in short supply as the rubber tends to harden with age and split and shrink . Looked around at alternative cars to rob the parts from but the scimitar wiper spindle comes out of the bulkhead at almost right angles , all the others seem to be more of an angle . Also other cars that used to have rubbers now tend to have replacement chrome or stainless parts available to them.
So i think there is a need for (a) Replacement Rubber ferules or (b) Stainless replacements or (c) Does anybody know another car that may fit without modification .

Yes it is covered but I see no mention of where he got them or how much they are. I did ask before, I think Eric Newton, or something like that, was mentioned which means nothing to me. I want them for my SE6.

Terry the wiper bezels were from Eric newton @ £18.00 + P&P in stainless steel with matching nuts, the gaskets are off ebay and were for an E type Jag from wjperryjaguarspares and were priced @ £4.80 inc postage but they need trimming back a little, I could have bought some gasket and done my own but it is far easier to just run the trimming knife round these.

Conatct details for Eric Newton tel:01773-811298 He also does some nice Stainless drain tubes for the rear hatch. and will post pictures later as the new tube and t pieces have arrived.

Isn't Eric the man who does (did?) the stainless steel Se6-on window frames too? or is my memory going?

Not in this instance Roger :lol: I have just fitted one side but with car trouble and the weather I have not had chance to do the other side yet.

Never thought about the rear one, my minds not with it at the moment. Had my flu jab Monday, been ill all week and spent the last two days in bed, exept for something to eat, drink and check emails. Back to bed in a moment.

Best thing Roy is to give Eric a ring as he will know and if they are different he will probably make those too.
