    Missing rack parts?

    I do not have these on my car:
    https://rimmerbros.com/Item--i-150711U

    Not quite sure where they go or if I need them. Not in the manual, and Rimmer catalog is not terribly clear. Clearly, someone has been there before me. Name of "locating plate" suggests the serve a valid function.

    Yes they fit onto the x member (large side) and rack (small side) forming a 90 degree support. How was your rack fixed to the car then?

      I have the two right angle pieces. These look like spacers that sit between the rack and right angle.

        Just looking again They’re not the parts I thought they were. I’ve had my rack off and on again about 6 times this summer but can’t recall if those were up there

            I thought they went the other way round so the two right angles nestle into each other. The idea of the angled slots is to wedge the rack to prevent it shifting sideways in the slotted mounting holes.

              Ah, so they go between the bolt head and the bracket?

                  i have them on my stag, fit outside of the angle bracket on the flange, the bolt goes through the whole lot and allows for it to locate nice and tight

                  so in answer to your thread title, yes you are

                    Super. I'll add them to my order. So they go between the rack and bracket as picture in Post 8. Man are there a lot of "professional" mechanics who should not be in business. A retired computer scientist should not be identifying so many things wrong!

                      That’s wrong. The small brackets fit below the bigger brackets with the curved edge against the inner bend of the larger one.

                        Thanks Dave. Saved me from changing something that was right in the 1st place.

                          You are right, it was an old picture. This is the present situation.

                            Makes more sense. That was my original thought. Guess Peter needs to flip his.
