Eriba blind cassette

Hi,

I have a Triton 430GT 2005. My youngest somehow managed to pull the whole blind cassette off whist attempting to close the blind. The vertical up rights have broken where they screw into the caravan. (at the bottom) Does anyone know if these can be replaced or is it a DIY job?

Thanks

Rob

p.s first time post so apologies if its the wrong section :)

The bottom brackets are available from various sources on the wonder web. They are left and right handed.
I bought 2 of each a while ago, two to fit and two spares. Sorry, can't remember where at the moment.

They are standard blind fittings, not unique to Eriba, so should be readily available.

My 2007 Triton has Remis blinds. Google that and loads of parts come up.

Welcome Rob. I'm guessing the screws pulled through the holes in the plastic, splitting it. Would it be possible to re-fix with a washer under the head of all the screws and not just those where you have the problem as the plastic may have hardened and become brittle with age.
I would also be tempted to masking tape the area around the blind accurately and apply a clear silicon sealant on the back when you re-fit.
Failing this it will be a new blind and I don't believe they are cheap. You could try LeisureShop Direct.

Dave, am I guessing correctly in that you may be able to get the small "gubbins" with the holes in as a repair part?
If so than that's a great result.

Thanks for al the replies, amazing ...

Yes, the end caps have a plastic bracket that screws to the caravan. That has snapped off on both sides.

I think these look the same to me although only a front view

Thanks again!
