    Can anyone tell me the part number or the type of clip that fixes the front arch splash guards to the front bumper please?

    All of mine appear to have gone walkies!?!?!?

    The plastic locators that your clips go into also fall off, hence why I got a set with everything in. Just a heads up!

    This is true - so, thinking ahead, I'd ordered the clips as well
    AUDI 100, 80. A4 - A6 A8 TT WHEEL ARCH COVER FASTENER CLIPS x10 4A0805163 | eBay

    - - and will be returning them seeing as how they are either a very poor copy, or for a slightly different application.

    The bracket into which they are supposed to fit is significantly thicker than the moulded recess on the clip. Approx half that of the original.

    Annoying.

    Regs, Mike.

    Remains of the original on the left - the eBay item on the right - no way will they fit!

    5 mins! Get one side in, use a bent tent peg or old screwdriver to get purchase on the other side - no worries.

    Many thanks to Cameron Audi in Perth who gave me two FOC - normally .80 + vat.

    If anyone wants some of the retaining rivit thingies, let me know - Mike
