Can anyone tell me what this part is?

It's a small black clip looking thing. I found it when I was installing my pollen filter and was replacing the plenum.

Anyone with the CD, help is appreciated!

Can't tell you where it goes, but it's called a cable holder. ETKA identified the part in a search, but it doesn't link to any illustration.

Much thanks. At least I know what it's supposed to do. vc :thumbup:

I'll just have a look around under my hood and see if it fits somewhere, like legos!

Be careful when changing the pollen filter as this part magically appeared on top of the plenum on the driver's side!

I had the same thing happen: Mystery part magically shows up on plenum cover.

It is a clip for securing the cabling to the driver's side hood hinge. It clips to the part of the hinge that attaches to the hood. I had knocked it loose while wiping down the hinge during a cleaning.

It snaps right back on once you find the target location. Lift your hood, and go look at the hinge; it should be fairly clear how it goes on.
