Here I hope is a solution to the problem of broken indicator clips. Thanks to Chas for sending me some indicators to create the design from:



Here is one of my indicators with the clips missing. I had to file the area where the old clips had broken off so the area was smooth ready for the new clips:



Here are the clips printed out and fitted. They slot into the 2 curved holes either side of the old clips. I have Glued these in position. They won't be coming out or snapping again any time soon[biggrin] :



Back on the C5 and ready to go[laugh] :



I'll get your indicators posted back to you Chas and send you some clips for you to have a test.

[quote=dave;4717]So you need the metal clip springs aswell [/quote] LOL, no idea what they are. My indicators just clip into the White plastic body, never had any metal clips or springs You must be one of the lucky ones with a complete indicator kit These replacement clips might not work then with these metal clips/springs you speak of.
