S3 boot striker plate.

PostPost by: davidj » Wed Jan 20, 2021 10:03 am

Good morning,

Has anyone a picture of the s3 boot lock striker plate, the part which is attached to the boot lid? I don't think I have it amongst the 3d puzzle I am assembling, but then again, I don't know what I am looking for........

Thanks in advance.

David.

Hi David,
This is my S4 which I think will be the same as your S3.....

All the usual suspects list a replacement but it looks a somewhat simpler design...

Good morning David,
My S3 has the same one as in Roger`s photo. The fixing holes appear to be slotted for adjustment.

Now, the questions is, what did it come off originally? ....
