Didn't the car come with these as standard... I have an elite and the spare tyre hanger is mounted to this.

Mine has the same arrangement - I wonder if cars with an interior spare wheel lost it?

Is the price for that bit in Yen or £?

I do have a vibration when I decellerate in 4th gear

I thought this could may be due to worn gearbox mounts but they seem to be impossible to replace without pulling out the engine , gearbox and driveshaft, etc

I will fit this part and let you know whether it improve things

This brace was fitted by dealers according Lotus service bulletin 1979/10, they were fitted to 'reduce over-run and driveline vibration'.

Elites 1494A and from1498A onwards, from516B, 216C,103K and 100L

and Eclat 836D and from 839D onwards, from390E,185F,116P and 103Q were included on initial build.

Hope this makes sense
