Hello all, I drive a 2005 Cobalt with the 2.2 (L61) engine and the Getrag F23 5 speed manual trans. I just finished rebuilding my trans after successfully breaking 5th gear and the 5th gear synchro and grinding them down to nothing. Apparently I didn't take enough pics because I cant remember what these are for or where they go.

I know they don't go inside my trans (maybe outside?) It seems they are inserted somewhere and metal circles or bolt heads rest on them. After that I'm at a loss.

The trans, engine cradle, front suspension, front fascia, d/s wire harness, surge tank, ecm/fuse box & its bracket, plus all other related parts were all removed or moved aside. I have tried endlessly searching the 2 volume 2005 GM service manual with no luck and have also gone through all the 2005 parts diagrams at Parts groups CHEVROLET cobalt Cobalt (7zap.com) without finding a thing. I have also tried searching the numbers on the parts with no success.

Your help would greatly be appreciated because I am not moving forward without knowing where these damn things go. Sorry if this is not the correct location for the post.

Ive taken apart probably 15 of these cars down to frame and they don't look familiar to me at all. Really weird. I'm curious as well

I seem to remember them falling out of or off of something. I plan on going over all of the big plastic parts this weekend, but like you I have had my car apart and repaired things more times than I can count. (Thanks to my driving and the fact that its a cheap throw away 2000's model). Whenever I learn its secrets, I will be sure to let you know.

Sounds good. It almost looks like something pops into them. Maybe the bumper like where it meets the fenders?
