Question about 1983 Ford Fairmont
A loose part was found on the underside of my 78 Ford Fairmont, sticking out of a gap near the trannie (which has developed a rattling/loose-part -in-the-fan sound).
Car is a 6 cylinder 200 cu inch automatic.
Part desc: Resembles half of an apporox. 1.25" metal washer (picture the shape of a rainbow on flat ground), with two V-notches out of the outside edge. It doesn't look like something broken.. this appears to be the manufactured shape. Metal isn't very thick, but very rigid, and is smooth on both sides.
Can you tell me what it is and where it goes??
It sounds like it is a frame support, there should actually be a rubber bushing on the top of the washer, the bushing more than likely dry rotted and fell off.
