What is this?

Who is able to tell me what this piece is and how it goes back in?
-when removing the Vent Frame Channel Screw on the inside door panel just below the vent window this fell down inside the door. I have no idea, and I don't see it in the manual from the pages I looked on.

The screw looks like the one that goes through the door holding the vent window on a 67. I don’t know where the 1/8” shim goes.

Chances are the original hole was stripped out and that
shim was used to hold the screw like a nut. I have no
shims like that in my 67 doors.

Re: What is this?

When you re-installed the vent window frame, does the side window glass still roll up and down smoothly? Maybe that shim allowed the vent window track to move back (or forth) to prevent any binding of the side window to move up or down freely.

Never argue with an idiot; they'll only drag you down to their level, then beat you with experience.

Re: What is this?

I have not reinstalled the vent window yet. I am stripping the car down for paint this winter. After hearing some of the ideas, I am guessing it is for a stripped out hole. Just seems like a big piece to use for such a small thing.
