    forum power part 1 - can anyoneguess the unidentified part?

    The resto is pretty much complete, but now comes the difficult bit - putting it all together again. I've only just started and already have come across a part that I didn't label properly and have no clue what it is. A case of confidence over ability! Can anyone give me a steer please? I thought it might possibly be off the door, but can't see whereabouts.

    seems like a door catch to me. Should be fitted to the leading edge of the door. A strip should go trough it attached to the A pillar. you need two ea

    Cheers,
    William

    Agree with William but I would call it part of the door restraint mech (to stop the door opening too far). You should find a bit of flat curved metal with holes in the end that slots into this inside the door carcass.

    You are right Tim. The Dutch word for this part is 'deurvanger' translates directly into 'Door Catcher'. A part that catches the door before it opens too wide.

    Thumbs up Re: forum power part 1 - can anyoneguess the unidentified part?

    Cheers guys, much appreciated. That makes sense - I'm yet to rehang the doors so you've probably saved me having to redo this only to have to add this on later.

    I checked the S1 parts catalogue for the door hardware, and I don't see anything like it

    May have been an add-on. Don't recognize it either, at least, not for an S1. It may have been an S2 thing, less familiar with those.

    S1 S2 &3

    S1 Parts Book Tav 68A #3 and #27 make it up. It retains the door from opening to wide (getting caught by the wind etc).

    You are right Tim.

    Didn't recognize it, it is kind of hidden by the panel on the door opening, and its been a very long time since I have been looking inside.

    Agree with Tim,
    It's the check strap bracket.
