Hello all you experts. I have a problem with the wipers of my Sprint.
As you can see in the enclosed pictures on one wheel box the part that keeps the wiper arm is missing.
When i compare the mechanics with them for Triumph TR3 and TR4 i'm not sure that Alfa used this parts in the Sprint too. They are available from Triumph dealers.
I know we have a Lucas DR3 wiper motor, but is the rest also compatible with Lucas parts from other cars?
Can somebody offer a used wheel box?

Many thanks for any hint and best regards from germany. Roland

I had a wheel box "fixed" on my Spider and on a rare summer downpour, had to turn them on.

The arm on the driver's side flipped and scratched the windshield before I could hit the switch.:hammer:

Best to install new on both sides on a new cable.

There is a number stamped on the underside of the wheel box. Try Holdens in the UK or do a search for the Lucas number on line.

Lucas part number 72711A

Thanks to Stuart i found the part number. See pictures. Unfortunately Lucas made so many different models that it is really difficult to find exactly this one. I have the dimensions of the wheelbox also, mine has 32 teeth. Maybe somebody can offer this part. Best regards Roland
