    Pretty sure Andy manufactures them - they are drop-in replacements for the original Dax items (they fit on the same hinge-pin-tube affair); the Europa hinges would need a new hinge-pin arrangement (I...

    I need to do the same on my car (a Dax, granted) as water tends to come in under the seal in the valleys, even though it looks like the seal is touching nicely - when I tested the windscreen washers...
