Help required - S2 door assembly

PostPost by: PaulH » Sat Jun 22, 2019 12:06 pm

Hello,
Can someone assist me with some reference pictures for the assembly of an Elan S2 door. I have a small bracket that fixes to the inside top edge near the front. I think it must be to hold the outer weather strip somehow. Pictures of the bracket below:

Fingers crossed someone can help.

Paul, at the position of the front windowchannel, there is an upright slot in the inner door skin, with a small drilling. This will accept a long reach spire clip. This is were the screw goes, with the alluminium angle to hold the crome weather strip assy to the upper door edge.
