Hi guys, I wonder whether anyone knows where I can get some power steering pipe clips. I have just replaced the power steering pipes and the clips that seem to be located on the radiator brackets have disintegrated. I am attaching a couple of pictures.

If anybody knows the part number, or who has them in stock then I would grateful. Failing that I will have to start checking with the used parts guys !

The only part shown on LRCat that looks similar is ANR2985, available just about everywhere but your, or at least the remains of yours, looks slightly different. To avoid problems with duty and VAT, they are available from LR so your local main dealer can supply, or try RLD Autos in France (www.rld-autos.com).

I can't quite figure them out. I am beginning to wonder whether these clips could have come from elsewhere, but the one in the picture was definitely attached to one of the power steering pipes.

There are two strange looking brackets still fixed to the radiator support lugs, where the round holes that hold the shroud are. They seem to be metal fixing, but I will see if I can get a better look in the morning. Either way, I still don't see anything very explanatory in the RAVE manual, just a vague mention in the power steering section of the manual. I'll try the details that you have kindly given me.

I have had no information on these little buggers so I got on to James Coleman, in Essex, and he is going to see if he can rescue a few from his breakers.

It may be that they are ones off a different vehicle entirely, they look like what a few Ford vehicles use to me from the photos.

I don't know where they were on my car, but I thought that the one that I have fell off one of the power steering pipes. However, comparing the pipe size it would appear that they would be too small to fit the power steering pipes, even the metal sections. It looks much more likely that they are something to do with brake pipes. Or perhaps the EAS pipes.

I would love to know where they were fitted, but I guess that only someone who has completely stripped down a p38.

The other clips that I really want are the correct clips that hold the PS pipes, and are screwed to the two lugs which are located under the radiator. Maybe someone may have a part number, or even a couple lying around, unused.
