Trico Wiper Arm Spring

PostPost by: TeeJay » Sun Oct 01, 2017 4:13 pm

Anyone know a UK supplier for a spring for my Trico Wiper Arm.

It appears that there is a supplier of St. St. ones in the US, but not found a supplier in the UK.

An alternative is to purchase a complete arm (including Spring) from the usual Lotus suspects, which I am trying to avoid.

Thanks for any comments

I just bought two Trico wiper arms of Sue Miller.

Do you know how long the spring should be? i have my old wiper arms but they don't appear to be Trico but might work.

That?s great Chris, thanks for your prompt reply. :D
I really appreciate your assistance.

That spring is the correct size and also has the short and long hook ends.

I have PM?ed you my address and will cover any of your out of pocket expenses.


Thanks again

Chris, springs arrived and fitted.

Thank you, much appreciated. :D
