Rear Wiper Blanking plug??
« on: 22:06, Mon 25 July 2011 »
Hi Guys and gals

So i want to remove the rear wiper and blank it off,

i dont use it, the arm is going rusty and its a tiny bit of unnecessary weight,
i removed the wiper on my rs1800 fez and popped down the breakers yard to grabbed a steel blanking plug from a low spec fez job done, did any of the low spec R5's come without a rear wiper or does anyone know of another renault which came without rear wiper but a blanking plug in place which would fit the R5, i could get a plate welded in he boot filled and resprayed but i might want to put the motor back on if i sell sell sell

anyone here done this?
how did you go about it

Cheers
:D

Lesser specced R5's came without rear wipers and should have both the caps for the wiper arm and rear wash nozzle.

I'm going to hazard a guess that maybe a Clio one would be suitable? I would of thought a wiper arm spindle would be a fairly universal size. Pocket a few from your favorite breakers and try your luck.

Your local motor factors will more than likely have some rubber bungs in stock, I know halfords sell them but you will need to buy 2 small boxes @ Halfords prices to ge the correct sizes as they are not in the same box :( i use the halfords jobbies,

thanks for your suggestions guys,

i will take a look down the scrappy tomorrow see what renaults are down there,

and yes halfords selection boxes are over prices especially when you only want 1 fitting from the box or 50 or so,

i'll report back with my findings :D

sorry thread has gone pretty stale,

I never did find a blanking plug down the breakers,
however as suggested i went to halfrauds and picked up the 3 pack 19mm 22mm 25mm the 19mm fell inside the boot through the hole and is flapping around with the rear wiper wire and the 22mm fitted in nice and tight the

1.50 something on trade , loverly
