Greetings TRS folks!

I recently acquired an 86 Bronco for my daughter to use and for us to work on together as a project rig. Obligatory pic:

Today we were tightening up the mirror bracket on the passenger side and the nut was spinning so we had to remove the door cover to access it. In the process, the window crank spring and an unknown metal retaining clip fell out.

The spring was easy to figure out but I can't figure out where the heck this guy goes and haven't been able to match it up against anything on a Google search. Can anyone tell me where it's supposed to go? The retainer:

That KS in Adcanxe.g clip fell out. The spring was easy to figure out but I can't figure out where the heck this guy goes and haven't been able to match it up against anything on a Google search. Can anyone tell me where it's supposed to go? The retainer:

Thanks!
That is not a Bronco II. That is a full size. I believe 3rd gen regular bronco. Made from 80-86.

I'm sure a Ford guru will be along shortly to help answer your question. And welcome!

Haha, wow, really? As a lifetime Ford fan I'm totally embarrassed 😂. Especially having owned a ranger, exploder, a few F150s and currently an F250 7.3t.

Literally got it a few days ago from a friend...could've swore they had said it's a BII when I bought it. I honestly haven't checked as I've been working 12-15 hour days since. It was steal so I just wrote the check and daughter drove off in it.

Posted over FSB at first but then came here once I realized a full size was different.

Sure, will get some more pics this evening. It's super nice, but, def still 34 years old tho. 73k orig miles and I'm only the 3rd owner. 2nd owner only had it 2 years and didn't even put 3k miles on it. It's gonna be a blast restoring and upgrading it!

Still scratching my head on this stupid clip. Guess I can pull the driver's side this evening and see if I can find it's twin.
