Front shock absorber dust covers

I am about to change front shock absorbers to my Barchetta, but the old ones did not have the dust covers and replacement ones are difficult to find. The article seems to be sold out for example at AutoDoc etc. usual suppliers. Any ideas, where to look for?

The Fiat part number is 46406113 and is probably still available from Fiat (was available in 2014). HOWEVER back in 2014 this item cost 50 including VAT!!!!!

Well I did say there were expensive.

Have you thought of making you own covers? Starting point would be a large diameter thin wall rubber hose preferable of corrugated structure.

Re: Front shock absorber dust covers

You would think that some other make would fit? Just a case of having the right diameter to fit the piston at the top and large enough to go over the main body of the strut.....no idea how you would get the info to compare though....perhaps an after market strut manufacturer?

Yes, after seeing the price of the originals that idea came into my mind as well...

Re: Front shock absorber dust covers

Case closed! After going through almost all possible and impossible options I found out that ordinary Fiat Punto covers fit. Bought from the local parts dealer, 5,90 euros each.

Re: Front shock absorber dust covers

Unfortunately the parts plastic bags are already tossed away so I do not have the make or part number. Buying was more or less a long shot. I just chose the covers that the local parts dealer said to fit to Punto I/I/III 1997 models.

Thanks. Punto I/II/II 1997 models is all I need. This will give me the Fiat P/N and from there various maker's PNs will be available.
