Front Indicators
« on: 10 May 2019, 06:18 AM »
After some help guys...

Inside the engine bay, there is a plastic threaded retainer that attaches to the indicator housing bolt that comes through the wing.
I have no idea what this thing is called and can't find it anywhere online.

I do know however that I am missing one of them as one of my indicator units went flying down the road earlier! I have tried using one of the retainers from the rear light clusters but the tread size is different.

Does anyone know either the part number of this elusive piece of plastic or where i can get one from?

Any help would be appreciated.

You mean the white(ish) plastic nut?
That'd be A1089900057, about £3 at your local dealer.

The rear one is A1159900557, and costs a whopping £12 for some reason.

Both are made of maybe 50p worth of plastic (most likely Delrin, or Nylon)...

You mean the nut or the threaded rod?The rod is integrated into the indicator housing.
The nuts you can find on ebay used, and probably new as well:
