I own this set. It has only been assembled once, and the bricks have never been
mixed with other bricks and I'm 100% convinced there are no bricks missing.
But nevertheless, I found different extras in this set:

There were 3 of these

 
Part No: 32002  Name: Technic, Pin 3/4
* 
32002 Technic, Pin 3/4
Parts: Technic, Pin

instead of 2 and there were only 2 of these

 
Part No: 4274  Name: Technic, Pin 1/2
* 
4274 Technic, Pin 1/2
Parts: Technic, Pin

instead of 3.

My extras happen to be identical to the numbers on Peeron. I can see that "maninblack"
removed one 32002 when he split the inventory into regulars/extras in 2007. I
bet that was an error.

Please advise me how I should handle this. Should I send an inventory request
for both parts, only part 32002, or no changes at all?

The attached image also documents the 4032b alternate.

Best wishes,
Jan

Give me a little time to review this (might take a few days). I need to review
the change logs and set instructions and see if perhaps alternate set instructions
exist.

I won't forget about it, though.

Okay, I've had a chance to examine this inventory and the set instructions.
For this part:

 
Part No: 32002  Name: Technic, Pin 3/4
* 
32002 Technic, Pin 3/4
Parts: Technic, Pin

I agree that there was likely an error in the 2007 changes and I will approve
your change request when you submit it.

For this part:

 
Part No: 4274  Name: Technic, Pin 1/2
* 
4274 Technic, Pin 1/2
Parts: Technic, Pin

The original inventory source indicated that 3 extras were present and, considering
that 23 were included in the set, this does not seem unlikely. Therefore, I
think it would be best to leave that one alone. I know from experience that
sets do not always include the same extras or the same number of extras, so I
do not consider it wise to remove extras unless there is a compelling reason.
