Hi all,

I was gutting my passenger door to replace/refurbish any dodgy components and came across a large washer lying in the bottom of the door. I have checked online and all the parts drawings and cannot, for life of me, find where it belongs. It wasn't there when I started. It's the one leaning on the spanner (wrench).

Can anyone suggest where it lives?

Thanks
Andy

I believe it is one of the distance washers for the window tracks. Besides that, I'd say put it back exactly where you found it... TR6s are VERY finely balanced cars, using the utmost of English precision workmanship to stabilize and laterally balance the vehicle. This washer was obviously a precision set balance augmenter- and as we all know, the removal of such an augmenter could negatively effect the vehicle! Without that weight in the proper place, the car could cut fast through a curve, have a hyperspace spin, and end up in another dimension- something none of us really want to experience (again)! Or not.

PS- pretty sure it is simply an extra spacer that got dropped during manufacture...

Like Ken stated. it is a spacer. It probable came off the front or rear window track keepers at the top tightening points,

If you can slide your window a little front to back when fully raised than you need to replace it. Positioning will be dictated by how close or far the glass is to the the windshield frame.
