See my photos attached  The part labeled 'A' I think fits over the rubber grommet 'B', correct? and is orientated as shown to set the wiper blade as shown in the other photo.  Then a nut holds the arm on to the spindle.

Yes you're right it doesn't just push on I'm thinking of the wrong car!! The S1 may be different to your car but mine looks like this...

Lotus Esprit [meaning] a 1:1 scale Airfix kit with a propensity to catch fire

Thanks Paul, but I think something is amiss with my car.  The link you gave did not mention the rubber grommet as found on my car.  So, if anyone has an S3 or Turbo from 83/84, please can you post a clear photo?

Thanks Simon.  Yes, your car's set up looks a little different to mine, but its something for me to on.  Seems you have a pin through the spindle?  And the pantograph? arm bit is different to mine.

Hi Gordon,

Here's how mine looks:


Seems there is a lot of different versions out there. 

Can't seem to be able to add my second picture above so:


Hope it helps

Something I learned about cars or planes, it all works until it doesn't anymore...sometime there is no way around it!
