looking for coolant/heater hose caps to go over the fittings on the engine where the heater hoses normally attach. i've tried various suppliers here in NZ and no-one has any. i've seen em on a few 308's so they must be available somewhere

does anybody know where to get em and what the proper name is for em

cheers
