Can anybody help me with some replacement spring bar holders, for 80 end links 20mm.
Have searched for some, generic would be fine, anybody know, or has sourced these parts before.
Thanks Mike

Also on eBay if you do not mind generics. But the quality is certainly not the same.

Thought that might be case after a re-read. Depending how bad, a repair might work. Is the rivet broke or the slot that houses the rivet? Or is the part the houses the spring bar? There are a few around that repair bracelets and there are watchmakers that do laser welds. Any pictures?
If just a rivet, you should be able to get a new rivet without much trouble from a watchmaker

Any pictures?

Hello and thanks for your help.
I think at some stage, the spring bar holder has snapped, and has been refolded over the last end link.
As this is now to short, as i put the spring bar into the case holes,it pulls the end link and rivit link to close
together,i dont know if any body has had this problem as well. Thanks Mike

I have asked my Rolex watchmaker and he has said he is unable to get them.

Best is to buy a bracelet for parts on here or the auction site. The one pictured is for a 19 mm 7205 rivet I got in a parts buy.
