Need name of a part

    Ran into a situation and need to know the name of a part, so will first explain:
    Machine is a Roland Soljet Pro II

    There is a ribbon strip which travels back and forth on the gantry attached to the print head.
    With it are two semi-clear glide strips which protect it as it travels - as the ribbon strip is sandwiched in between them.

    The printer is a few years old and still prints perfect, though mist has accumulated over the years and gummed up those strips to the point of creating friction, thus they have finally grabbed.
    I stopped the machine when I heard the strange snapping sound - opened it up and did the best I could to wipe them down with cleaning fluid. They look good, but...

    They appear slightly out of alignment as a result of the 'event' and I would venture to guess they should be replaced asap. Just don't know what part name they would come up under.

    Any help appreciated.

    Sounds like you're talking about the encoder strip. Also, clean it with alcohol, not the solvent cleaner

    Not an encoder strip. I think I found the tile: Cable Guides. I'll attach an image I found, yet leads to nowhere.

    UPDATE
    I sourced a vendor who could get them. Called a 'Flex Cable Guide'.
    Who'd a thunk?
