Name that part...

Post by Mark.T » Fri Jul 08, 2016 1:55 pm

Been re-installing or replacing various parts under the bonnet on my 19TRS Series 2 before putting the transmission back in - HP pump, timing belt, starter motor... I was pretty carful with putting various smaller bits and pieces in labelled takaway trays, but have come across a few parts I can't recall where they came from #-o

I was hoping somebody might recognise them...

I expect there will be a few more - but first up are two types of washer. Firstly three similar steel washers about 2 cm diam., each with a small notch on one edge. Secondly a larger, thinner spring washer (about 3 cm diam.).

Photos are below, but I think they came out when I removed the FDV and disconnected the regulator and support from the transmisison/engine, but could also have come from around the steering rack as it has also been removed.

Those really thin distorted washers appear to be from the seatbelt mounts. Possibly used as makeshift packing by p.o. ?

They look like the washers that go between the steering rack and the subframe possibly

Thanks for suggestions - I think I worked out where these washers come from. The three 2 cm washers are probably part no 694677 - one of these came from below the gear change linkage where it pivots on the steering rack, and two came from above and below the clutch lever. I've marked these in the diagram below.

JayW mentioned seat belt mounts for the larger washer and that rang a bell - but not a BX one. A couple of years ago I borrowed a Mazda 323 from a friend for a few months and after a water leak from the boot removed the carpets and seats to dry out - This washer was from the seat belt mount. I think it was missed on reassembly and has been lurking on the garage floor since.
