    Mysterious C clip...

    Hello,
    I found an internal c clip under the middle/front of the car.....on the floor....
    Hate things like this...
    Its like one of the squueze together ones that are normally in the UJ's.....
    I have checked the prop 8x clips..all there...
    I have checked the two x 8 clips to each rear wheel and all there...
    I have checked the steering shaft and not that as their too small a size and they are crimped sealed from AK anyway...
    Im going maddddd
    Any ideas?
    Some of the uj,s on the prop are circlips and some are squeeze type clips when i had the prop shaft shortened done etc.....
    ..?....??

    One that you lost years ago and has suddenly made an appearance?

    I took the other halfs MINI apart and not one but two M8 bolts fell out of the undertray.. they looked brand new and identical to the main ground strap bolt (weirdly, a through bolt on that car) - pretty sure the dealer/last person in there dropped not one but two, and they've taken this long (it's a 2007 car) to work their way back out again!

    It might be mine; I had one ping off in the workshop a while back and I never did find it. Reckon it went through one of those space/time portal things and ended up in your car. You didn't come across any tape measures or pencils at the same time did you?
