The protrusions: they're worn, its hard to tell. They look like they were
once little vertical hooks. One is in quite good shape. The other is sloped,
but I think it could be modified or built up on a cold or rainy and
otherwise useless "car day" to work.

OK I have it. I'm still not clear on the action of the spring on the upper
and lower nylon pieces and their function. The cancelling cam doesn't move
them up and down, the lever does. And the steering wheel blade pulls down
the cam, and with it the whole works. The spring clearly holds the nylon
pieces in their grooves better, but I dont see any function to them. (I'm
not doubting there was one).

Ahh forget it. I must be boring the daylights out of you. Maybe I have a
little spring I can just put in place to see what happens to it, just to
watch the action. I wouldnt put the wrong part in there, even temporarily.
Maybe those nylon pieces are just glides of a sort. In my car, they're UNDER
a metal plate, not like in Bentley.

You and me both. It's really mangled.
