    I've just found this on my workbench and not sure what car or part this came from. I have seen this before on something but I'm having trouble remembering.

    I think its some kind of retent spring or circlip, its got a radius about the same as a golf ball.

    Many thanks

    Could it be a spring clip that fits on the inside of a wheel centre cap?

    Ahh yes you might be right, I'll be looking tonight. I know I've seen it before, and have carried out some work on a couple of cars, but have no recollection whatsoever of taking his out. I'll be checking the wheel cps tonight and le you know.

    Many thanks

    Hmm...

    I wouldn't even know how to describe the shape in order to search for what it could be - three armed/pronged/spoked isn't working.

    I've just found out what it is. It comes in a packet with a few other gaskets as part of a thermostat.

    I needed to know exactly what it was as I just had a complete gearbox apart and didn't want to leave anything out as you can imagine. I had left it on a shelf, and somehow its been knocked off and onto my workbench.

    All sorted now, many thanks for your input guy's.

    Nicely done Sir, I hope whoever got the thermostat doesn't come back looking for the clip
