Clip for Cabrio cover

I need to get clips like this, they are about 42mm X 21mm, bigger than any curtain clips I can find, can anyone help please. They hold the cover in place when the roof is down.

Re: Clip for Cabrio cover

well i can tell you part no. is 46730177
but its also not sold by fiat anymore...

So i guess contact people on ebay who have cabriolet parts listed... I know Rob at PuntoSpares is or was stripping a cabbie recently but i'm sure there will be others too.

Re: Clip for Cabrio cover

Thanks for that, I did look on ePer and got the part number but it's very out of date regarding availability. Seems to be some available in Germany???? Not too sure about the site though https://en.partacus.de/spareparts/de...b6a8cf736c600/ Problem is the price of postage.
Has anybody bought from this crowd?

I have spoken to a couple of 3D printing guys and they will be in touch next week, We have a bank holiday Monday, Does anybody want some if the price is right? I'd imagine that the set up cost is more than the material used so probably cost as much to do 2 as 20. I'll have a better idea next week an will post the result.

Re: Clip for Cabrio cover

I have a eper form 2014 on my computer and it was out of production then 3d printing is a good plan if noone is breaking one currently

Re: Clip for Cabrio cover

Breakers don't have them as they are part of the optional cover not the soft top. 3d printing seems to be the way to go

Re: Clip for Cabrio cover

Aye, I'd have a couple from you. I haven't actually got a roof cover, but I'll always be on the look out for one. Might as well chip in.

Re: Clip for Cabrio cover

The guy printing them hasn't told me how much yet but I don't think it will be much. I think he's doing 10 for a start.
