Mystery bracket - where does this go?

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

Both Paul Coleman and I are stuck trying to figure out where this bracket goes.  None of us have a clue and this was already removed from my car when I bought it .


Does anyone have any idea ?




Thanks in advance :)

I think it clamps the bottom of the dashboard to the transmission tunnel just underneath the radio hole.


Vin, I think Phil is correct with this.


Cheers, Paul.

Looks very similar to this one in Mark.Jones photo archive.


Hopefully this link works.


If that link works, there are a couple more photos back or forth in the series. If not, I can put some up on photobucket.


Now I'm just guessing at this whole thing so don't take this as a definite answer.


If it is the same (and it looks like some bolts may not be attached to yours), then it is a plate on the outer side of the body shell that the handbrake lever attaches to. This plate may be on both sides of the car (LHD and RHD), just guessing. There's also a shorter and fatter plate further back that holds the two handbrake cables.


Hope this helps.


EDITED: Thought I'd just insert the photos here.
