Question Carbon tailgate

Recommended Posts

As I've received and installed a used OE Lotus Carbon tailgate on my 400, I need to order a few things aside.


In fact, everything from 53 to 63.

Could someone tell me the purpose and position of part n°63 called 'stop bracket' please? 

Is it here to prevent from opening the lid to wide, where is it mounted? Pictures could help. 

Thanks guys.

It's exactly that, it stops the tailgate being pushed too high and flexing/cracking the cosmetic roof panel that sits above it. As the carbon tailgate  doesn't use the gas struts it essentially has no limit to where it can be pushed. 

Do you trust yourself not to forget as its simply a safety limit?
