    TR2 Chassis Clips

    Hi all

    I am restoring a TR2 and there is a clip on the outside of the chassis behind the rearmost axle limit strap bolt. I can't work out what it is for. I will need to remove the clip as it now interferes with the axle limit strap but not sure if I need to replace it. I have attached a photo (I hope!).

    You can get those fuel line clips at Moss or the big 3 I should say. The Moss catalog is the clearest to read, but they all have them online.

    That looks like the fuel tank breather tube clip.

    Yes...it's for your fuel line, but it is a clip inside a hole and will easily pop out. Save it for later, though. Graham is right, if it is on the right side. If it's on the left, then I think it was in the wrong hole, as the fuel line runs much farther forward on the left.

    It is kinda a general clip, brake lines, fuel lines, od cable under the car, if it is a breather clip turn it 90. Those clips can be a pain. Like with the breather, put the clip next to the line and turn the clip onto the piece. Sometime popping the line into clip works also.
