>Hoping someone can help with this.  Car is an '84 5KS.  Noticed a small
part in the driver's footwell today.  Looks like a small black washer with
a ridge around the center hole and an opening on one side - sort of 'U'
shaped.  Anyone know what this is for?  I checked the Bentley, but there
doesn't seem to be anything that looks like this in there.  Took a good
look at the pedals as well and can't figure out where this would go.  No
problems with pedal operation either.  Any help would be appreciated.

It's the retainer clip for the clevis pin on your clutch or brake master
cylinder. Weren't you in there recently?

Better find out which one and put the clip back on - if the clevis pin
backs out, you will have NO BRAKES or no clutch. These can be a bitch to
click into place sometimes. Steel fingernails help.

Fix this NOW!
