Esprit S1 Tool Kit - Misc including parts cross references - The Lotus Forums Jump to content


Recommended Posts

I have a Esprit S1 tool kit complete with tool roll.

All items are accounted for and in excellent unused condition.

I need a correct tool kit for my 1979 S2 and I would like to trade with someone.

I am also looking for the correct jack, jack handle, and wheel brace.

Does anyone have a source or possibly a few spare white plastic clips to hold the jack handle to the recess in the engine cover?

Two out of three of mine are broken.

Any help would be appreciated.

I bought some bits from Lotusbits in England, I think some items were shared with the Eclat.

The jack is the same as most Lotus cars, exactly the same as the M100 but with a angled plate fitted.

Would be good if someone had a photo of an original kit just to be sure.

Phil,

I found two photos of the S1 tool kit and jack for your info:

Phil,

These photos are from Renn Ortenburger's website for your reference. They are not photos of my S1 tools. I wish...

Wow looks fantastic! You did a great job, I found the jack to be useful when lifting up the back of the car to get to the ailing fuel pump. The L plate stopped the car sliding off.

Thank you! :thumbsup:
