My mum has a C3 and recently she's heard a rattle in her drivers door. I took the panel off and found the piece pictured below in the bottom of the door.

She hasn't used her electric window in case it's from there. I called in to the Citroen garage and they tell me all the parts used inside the door are matt plastic, this is shiny plastic. A dark grey colour.

Has anyone had a bit like this break off?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks.
Lesley.

No, and it going to be difficult to get it back together :(

Yours looks incomplete so I would suggest sourcing a replacement from eBay (click here) but they are hard to find :(

Hi, thanks so much. At least mum can use her window now. Everything else seems to be working ok, at least for now. I
Even the citroen mechanic didn't know what it was.

This is why I love forums.
Thanks again.

It looks like a counter weight, does the outside door handle 'feel' different on operating it compare to the other door?
