64/65 Sun Visor Clips

Does anybody have a pair of these original ‘Y’ shaped clips they’d part with? Condition/colour doesn’t matter as long as they’re intact.

Part Number: ADA4484

It seems that the new reproductions are 3D-printed and look not so good due to their finish and equally cracked at the bottom when gently knocking them in…?

I know they were shared by the Moggie at some stage, though I haven’t had any luck thus far with these search descriptors either!

I’m based in Brisbane, Australia but have family in the UK I can ship to if that’s preferred.

Many thanks! :)

I'll probably have a pair. Will check, but it may take a day or two.

My 66 SDL uses the same clips but over the ages they are very brittle if you disturb them. I believe I bought the new ones from Somerfords.

Hello and thanks for the tip off!

If it’s hard to source any originals, I’ll absolutely look at Somerford’s offering.

Cheers for taking the time to reply,

Thomas :)

Sorry, I did have a look, but couldn't find any decent ones. Both the ones I have are broken.

I bought some from Somerford a while back....they were excellent....didn't have any issues with them cracking etc.
Mind you....that was a couple of years ago....maybe the newer items are different.

Heya mate,

Thanks for weighing in, very helpful. That’s two votes for Somerford now. Might have to just take a punt!

Cheers :D
