Second this. That's how it's supposed to work. If you just pull off the door card this may stay on the door card but is most likely damaged. When you lift the door card this part will stay intact on the door but slides out of the card.

First time I pulled my right front door card, this part was missing. Some ham-fisted fool had replaced the DHC previously and just left the whole thing out (along with a list of other butchery performed while they were in there).

Not having one on hand (and no chance of getting one for weeks) I made a temporary one from soft plastic - I intend to replace it next time the card comes off but so far it's been in there for about 3 years and it still holding fine!

Had to order some of these clips before I could put everything back together. If, when you close your door, you have a loud clanking sound, this guy is the reason. Without it (or if it's broken) the metal part on the door card just bounces on the metal prong that is supposed to go through that clip and makes a horrible racket. Part number is 51418156532. After replacing that clip and the sound deadening, the doors close like bank vaults. Think brand new off the show room floor E39 sounding.

Aways had a weird creaking noise I hear when pulling the driver door closed from the inside. I had a feeling this piece was missing and when I first dug in the glovebox I found that clip sitting in there...

Thirds on this. Final step of door card removal is to slide upwards so that clip comes off the metal piece on the door card and remains on the metal clip on the door itself. Then you can transfer it back to the door card before re-installation.

At least, that's how it's supposed to work... in theory. Sometimes the clips don't want to slide/disengage at all from the card and you just break them. Order some for planned door card removal, I got 3 for <$10.

Yep, very common. People either break them of forget them. But hey, we've all been there. After reinstalling my door card I realized I forgot to hook up the handle courtesy light. It's always my last step because the clear plastic on the handle that channels the LED, breaks if you just look at it wrong.

I bought three of those on my last FCP order. I get them to stay in place during reinstall with some tape but next time off they are getting replaced.

Received steering rack that I bought and took it a part to see if it's rebuildable. Seems fine to me, so I ordered repair kit for it.

Degrease it completely and put it together and check trueness, lash with strips 1st and clean any burrs (micro file) before rebuilding with your kit. (Don't ask...)

The Torque converter is another area where my 1st rebuild took a dump, but was able to get different one for the final rebuild.

Yep gotta clean the parts before. I already took seals out of housing and cleaned it. Gotta do the same for other parts too.
