I have been dismantling my No 3 Y10 for spares and came across this strange item mounted on a bracket on the front cross-member, behind the radiator and its mounting panel.
It reminds me of a spiky thing my mother used to put in the bottom of a flower vase to hold the flower stems in position.
I have no idea what it is on the Y10 for so does anybody out there have any ideas?

I have one too. I haven't a clue why it is that shape but isn't it part of the bumper mounting?

Your Y10's restoration is looking good Frank Grin

Was looking good. That was early last year and all sorts of bits of rust have burst out elsewhere, specially where the bracing cross members under the floor meet the sills. My attempts at welding are tending to look like artistic steel sculptures of bird droppings but I am persevering. One of the bump stop turrets inside the near side rear spring has detached completely so that is another job to address.

Hi Frank
Perhaps if I posted a picture of the completely non-existent cill on my donor car it would cheer you up!
Because of their susceptibility to rust they will become quite rare soon---and therefore achieve some value---or so I keep telling myself!!

Regarding the mystery item there is a 2cm gap between the spikes and the inside face of the bumper so I cannot see how it can have any function at all.
Incidentally I did not mention before but it is made of a hard plastic material.

Perhaps it's one of those eco-friendly things for insects to hibernate in for the winter? I have often wondered how the spiders in cars seem to survive no matter what.

Also, if you are breaking a Y10 do you by any chance have a useable rear axle beam I might acquire? I have broken two Y10s (thereby assisting in the future scarcity and hence value) but never went as far as keeping an axle beam.

Ben,
It's a genuine part and listed on eper as 5981746 Wick? not that it helps much!
The part it superseded is shown as a pad, which also doesn't help, my own feelings are that it's something to do with stopping the bumper being pushed back ofar in a low speed collision.

A bit of chicken wire, some filler and a dab of underseal will see it fixed in no time! The windscreen  looks good, no delaminating?

Are the spring cups in that axle beam sound?
