Renovating a G4 and find 1 part missing.
It is the wedge part that sits at the side of the handle slide.
Image attached.
What is that part called so I can search for it?
Any uk suppliers (new or used)?

Your toe touch. It's not suppose to be crooked. The two arrows should be perpendicular to each other. It's likely you have a chipped off tooth on your toe touch.

To me it looks like the entire wheel is falling off. Happened on my Ultimate G. The levers got loose and then eventually the entire wheel came off.
