Looking for (4) anti rattle clips. I took it into the dealer for noise issues and they found out, it was because I don't have any of the clips on my car. If you have a couple spares lying around. Please PM me.

Thank you

Do these work for buzzes, squeaks, and chirps too?

I hope so - they could really quiet my ride!

Are these for the brakes? If so, the fronts have clips, one per caliper, and the rears just have a spring, so I don't know why you'd need four.

The front clip is B111J0098H and they're only $10 each new (check Flow/MyLotusGarage or BRG/LotusGarage if you want to buy online). Expensive for what they are but probably cheaper than spending time and energy finding something elsewhere.

I don't know where to get the rear spring as it doesn't seem to have a parts number in the diagrams, but I bet there's a fitment crossover with something else, or someone could take a picture and you could try to bend one yourself.

Yes these are for the brakes..I thought there were four of them. i guess i can order the clips for the front then look for the springs for the rear calipers. I mainly need the rears, since they are rattling. The dealer was saying that i needed the clips but i assumed they were all clips. thank you for the reply Bri3d.

And GR82DRV mine was rattling when i hit bumps or cracks in the road and when i turned left. It sounded just like a washer rattling on a bolt by the rear wheels, and they said its because i don't have any anti rattle clips on the calipers.

Sadly it looks like the rear springs aren't available on their own. They're part of the Lotus OEM rear pad replacement kit, but if you buy one you're spending a lot of money ($190) on brake pads that are only mediocre.

There's a link in that thread to a listing on Elise Parts, but at 22GBP for the set plus shipping from the UK it's pretty steep too.

A couple of vendors in that thread said they had some laying around, so I'd try PMing them.

There are a couple of threads over the years where people try to find an alternative from another vehicle (I'd swear there must be one), but I couldn't find any successfully.
