AP Brake bleed nipple covers

Mine are now perished and past their best. I have searched online for these... and they vary £1.30-£1.90 each... which I can live with (sort of)... but then postage is c. £10! Anyone know of a supplier who doesn't take the p1ss on shipping? Also, mine are 2001, are all AP calipers using the same as I can't see online an exact match but many close. Thanks Richard

Come to think of it I don't think my bleed nipples have covers, so watching with interest ... Any suggestions and I'll buy some too.

Richard - I bought these from frentech-uk on eBay just a few weeks ago; seem to fit well on my AP calipers.

Sometimes the cap from a washing up liquid bottle will fit as a temporary measure.

James thank you... 10 for the price some are charging for 1 or 2 and including P&P! Fingers crossed but many thanks!

Just to confirm that the recommendation from James B is spot on... 10 for the price most are charging for 1 or 2. Perfect match and fit.

Just from reference CP4970-133 looks to be the replacement part number for the current AP Calipers.

The top hat ones always seem to rot and split quickly.

I bought ATE porsche style ones from ebay, the type fitted to Audi, porsche vw etc.

They are a bit more substantial
