Default 1930 Cabriolet window slide bar

Folding windshield slide bar, not window.

Can someone please tell me where the metal spring part goes? What is the right order, I just do not see this in my books. I think one end closest to the inside is just the metal washer with rubber insert and the big knurled knob on top of the slide direct to the door jamb.

If that is OK then I need to know how to install the other end. It may be spring then metal slide then special little bolt that screws into the 12x24 end of the pin on the windshield.

Of course I may be wrong on both. LOL.

Thanks

Parts catalogs may have an exploded view, showing the correct order of the parts.

Yes, I just need to know how it is supposed to be attached. I did not see in standards or Les book I had so far.

thanks

Picture of my 1930 68B swing arm. Mine does not have a spring anywhere. If you can post a picture of your items maybe someone will know the correct answer.

I believe the spring in question is a thin washer made of spring steel.

I think you are correct, mine don't have that either.
