    Default Renault - Drain plug washers?

    Might be a bit tight fisted here.
    Got a few bits from a dealer recently, including a washer for the oil change.
    Was charged $1.50.
    Now who knows where can I get some that are cheaper $$, even if I buy quite a few.
    Measures 22.5 x 16.5 x 2MM.

    Are you serious? $1.50 a washer is a bargain, try a Toyota one...they were more last I checked.......but them from Dave at French Connection. Get a few in one go. You'll get the AF discount as well

    That is the going price. They are quite expensive to make. They are stamped square from a piece of copper and then carefully rounded. It takes hours. Then they have to get them in a sealed plastic bag. That is worse than making a ship in a bottle if the bags are well sealed to start with. Then you have to print a label which means employing someone who can spell 'washer'. They don't come cheap in China etc etc.

    Caravell in Box Hill. I usually get 10 and they aren't nearly as much. $1.50 for one washer is far to expensive.
