Hi I have a 1993 Mayfair with a missing Brake master cylinder cap. Can anyone point me in the direction of a new one that would be original to the car. Many thanks

Have you got a photo of the type of master cylinder? Being 27 years old it is possible it has been changed so you may end up with the wrong item if not careful!

I needed to replace my brake cap recently, I had the grey type as per the lefthand photo below.

 

I messaged some of the sellers on Ebay, as I wanted to make sure I bought a genuine AP/920E part, as the manufacturer of original AP part is now called 920E. I received the right hand side cap from Minimine, and it was indeed genuine in a 920E box.

All the Ebay sellers I contacted said that the ones that looked like the below link are a copy, and not an AP part. I presume they work fine, but I have no experience of this cap, others may have more info.
