Re: Legal limit for sun strip ??
Hi all, this is the 1st time ive done this but i need a bit of help got my clio 4 months ago and slowly making it look at bit better, i have just brought a blue renault sun strip and wondered if any knew how big it can be (depth) and i have heard that if the wipers touch the sun strip its ilegal and my wipers nearly touch the rubber at the top
any advice??? thanks
Iam 100% sure if the wiper blades come into contact with it its too low and all mot stations should fail it,i have in the past had issues myself and if its the case we are only talking by about 1" i would say most testers would allow for that but don't bet on it
,i have also in the past replaced the offending blade by buying a shorter blade pack...for example if you have 16" blades fitted you could replace them with 15"?? lets face it an inch is no big loss when it comes to the blades wipe stroke across the screen but on saying that i would not do it any more than that,
Hope that helps Donald
