    Yes I know that. I'm asking how the 'blue bit' is fixed to the car?

    it seems to be a pin the goes through the bracket itself, but like i say, it dont seem to twist in but it dont seem to want to be pushed in too, otherwise i would have just got the big grips out and squeezed it back in, but before i try that i want to know if anyone knew if they screwed in, do you think we could see this part on the ETK system ?

    umm, it looks like its part of the hinge set up, may get the grips on it and see how it pans out.
