I found this in my box of interior and windshield SS trim that I was detailing today. I need help to identify it so I put it back where it belongs

I also need a light green door lock button, or...if someone has a spare pair in any color, I'd buy 'em and paint them to match and then keep my original one for future if I find another original

I think that the part is off a vent window regulator. Maybe someone else will chime in. Hope that this helps. Lamar

I tried to find the pictures of when I rebuilt my '60 Impala 2drht vent window regulator before I posted the other picture but here are the rebuild pictures.

yeah, you usually find that part in the bottom of the door after it pops off the regulator!

Great detective work...Nice work on the rebuild and attention to the tap and screws putting it back together.
I bet it was in bottom of the door...My regulators work fine, not much inclined to disassemble at this time, but I'll tag it for future.

BTW: found my other lock knob. I'm pretty detailed during disassembly and remembered putting all the door hardware in baggies (window cranks, door handle, arm rest screws etc) one for each side. I had opened the driver's side baggie for the door handle and one window crank so I could drive the car to transmission and paint shop etc. and I bet the knob for driver's side fell out of the bag and into the box of baggies. But never thought to look for a passenger side baggie full of the sister parts, and sure enough, I checked, (before going to Church this Sunday morning), and found the matching green lock knob in the other baggie...Hooray and alleluia.

You and 59cheviac both nailed it, when I disassembled the car I did indeed find the piece in the bottom of the door. As for the rebuild job I can’t take credit for the procedure, another CT member had posted how he rebuilt his and I just followed his example. Lamar PS: glad you found your other part.

I bet you guys knew what would happen...with the door panels off I was spraying WD 40 into all the mechanisms and runners inside the door before trimmer comes, and the shaft for the vent window pushed right out the back where the keeper had fallen off. I was able to remove the mechanism with some persuasion over corrosion and I'll follow your guide to drill and tap screws for the keeper and relubricate it.

I followed the lead and drilled and tapped the regulator body and added 2 screws to hold the keeper in place. But I noticed that the bottom (back?) of the big gear was open on mine. Online photos show a flat disk with a hole, for the shaft to spin, set into the housing and peened over to hold it. Well I looked through my workshop from when I likely would have cleaned out the door while fixing things, but did not find that. I did however find a piece that exactly fit the outside dimension and fit the hold for the shaft. I noticed that the shaft has a slight ring cut into it, right where my replacement disk fits. I used a "C" clip as the retainer for the disk and lubed it up and it works great. Perhaps this was the original piece but of a different configuration from pictures of replacement regulator ($160.00)

It looks like the '59 & '60 regulators are a little different but glad that you got it fixed. Lamar

Glad you got it to work. The washer you found isn't originally for the regulator. Yours should look like PLS's. What you installed is actually a washer that is used on both the front shock upper nut/rubber bushing or possibly a sway bar link assembly.

Nice job on repurposing it to save what would have been an otherwise expensive regulator replacement.

If at first you don't suceed, destroy all evidence you ever tried...

Thank you, and I agree what original piece looks like...I wonder where it went...I am dutiful about such stuff when I find it
