  1. Lotus Elise
    Hello all, I need some help to gain access to the windscreen washer check valve on my Elise S3 since the windscreen washer has packed up. I have replaced the pump and made sure that the washer bottle is clean but I am still not getting any liquid to the windscreen. And I don't want to have to...

    Has anyone had their front clamshell crack and break where the grill above the radiator connects and holds? You can see it in the attached picture where the arrow is pointing (not the top horizontal line - that's the starshield edge). Wondering how people have fixed this in the past. I'm...

    Hi all, I have recently bought an Elise S3 from 2010 with a little over 50k miles on the clock. So far I have absolutely loved the car. But as I'm still learning I just have a question about something I have noticed. When I get into the car from cold I have a slight crunchy sound when...
  4. Parts For Sale
    These are the original Brake parts from my 2008 Elise SC. They only have a couple thousand miles on them, so are basically like new. Included are the four rotors, brake lines and the OEM brake pads. They were in use long enough to barely show show the pad contact area between the front and rear...

  6. Lotus Elise
    I have been looking for a salvage Elise for a while, and one has come up that has damage from the firewall/seat back bulkhead backwards, including the chassis legs. I realize that these are part of the long side box section but wonder if anyone has any experience reconstructing these and...

    Lotus Fam… what do we think a fair price is to sell stock/OEM Elise wheels (used with used but not done Dunlop Direzza tires)? They’ve been sitting in my garage in Metro-Detroit for about 7 years and my wife is done looking at them. Alternately, is there a good reason to keep them? I have an...
  8. Lotus Elise
    The Elise has always been my dream car, but I've been wanting to drive it to make sure it feels as good as I expect. I was wondering if anyone knows any way to drive or rent an elise in the LA/OC area? I've been searching through but only found old posts. Thanks!

    I probably spent way too much time on LotusTalk for the past couple days:). Been looking at a 2010 Evora, but now I'm quite confused... My goal is for a weekend fun car, not a DD. I prefer a Miata to a Cayman S, for example, for its lightweight fun factor. Does this mean I may be happier with...
  12. Lotus Elise
    Hi everyone. My hardtop front clamp piece hardware came apart when removing the hardtop and it looks like the plastic bolt holder things are broken (helps keep the bolts on the clamp piece). Anyone know if I can buy replacements or what they are called?

    Having issue after converting fuel lines to AN style. At the sending unit (fuel pump hanger) you have to use a adapter to convert Toyota factory style fuel fitting to AN. Adapter came with kit from Radium, first one leaked, they quickly set me another one. This one leaks also. Any movement of...

    In 2005 I ordered a lotus Elise and I had to wait 9 months to pick it up in Palm Beach Florida. The car now has over 50K miles and still, everywhere I go, people smile when they look at the car, take pictures and in general, it still looks great. This last year I have taken it to track days in...

    I wanted to get some feedback, if you have driven both the NA and SC models of the 2005-2008 Elise. Which one did you enjoy the driving experience more and what year did you prefer? Thanks

    Looking for drivers adjustable seat rail for the Elise/Exige platform. I have the Inokinetic tall rail that I’ll be parting with as it’s too far back for my height. Thanks. EDIT: just clarifying, it’s the big item #1 in the diagram. The whole adjustable drivers seat rail assembly.

  20. Lotus Elise
    It's time for me to change the front rotors on my '06 Elise. The previous owner installed full floating rotors on the front, but I don't track the car and don't really need to go that expensive. I don't know if they can be turned or how that would work with floating rotors. And I'm ready to be...
