so im guessing twisted it didnt affect much ? i figured it was thier to keep dirt from getting into where it was placed at..but i was like wtf this thing is almost touching the road on one side.. i know were it goes just dont know what its for or why it came out lol


ya it was under neath my car..i layed on the road and i was right behinde my front drivers side wheel. that rubber or foam thing u see in my picture slides into something metal under the car and just sits their..i dont know what for...but it was hanging down and didnt look to be in very good...i just sliped it right out..and im sure i could put it back in..

i just dont know what it is or what its used for

cripes... this sh*t scares me, I'm going to try and find where that piece goes this weekend.... WTF?!?!? I don't care how "unimportant" a part is, it shouldn't just fall off. Besides, it doesn't even look like a small part.... this is rediculous!


The hood/engine seal doesn't look like that, it's a seal of some sort.

Could you give a better description of where it was? Behind the front driver side wheel, do you mean towards engine bay or towards driver?

Chevy wanted to be like FORD, add a useless part and see if anyone notices.

Buddy of mine did a rebuild on his 351 Cleveland bout a month ago and had 5 parts left over from the engine rebuild he couldn't figure out where they went. the thing started right up and ran nicely.

I know what you mean , but this is not rebuilding, this is "came off" after it was built. Either way I feel uncomfortable, I mean this isn't building model plane or something....
