I’d really like to see a picture of this part installed in the car. Anyone?

I know I’ve seen it before and I just can’t remember where. The little tiny arm is held against something. Tempted to scour my Talon and see if I see it anywhere. Did you find it like on the ground or something?

Only thing I know about 2g is they look great. That part has a small tab on one side, like it locks into a companion small hole or notch, with the hole on that same surface meant for a bolt to mount that bracket against the frame. The other two holes must hold some gizmo in place: electrical?

So judging by the design and the wear marks on the open hole in the center, it is def something that rotates.. maybe something related to shifting or something door unlock/lock related? Rear trunk or part or the latch open assembly? Going to look at mine tomorrow during the day as well hahaha.

I don’t think it rotates, it’s just been removed and installed more than once. It holds something in the harness, a connector or large harness retainer slides onto it. I’m thinking look around the o2 sensors.

I think the folks saying 'mounts a connector' (or some other small part) have it. The dimple, the funny little lug sticking out ... The left picture shows the face that goes against body/chassis sheet metal with the lug dropping into a hole to prevent rotation. Something slips onto the folded back arm. The smaller hole mounts something else.

Variations on this part are all over the car. One of us will find it ... might even be me, since I'm working on a 2g tomorrow!

Thank you!

Now I know why I can’t use it - There is a CAS in that spot. But… maybe I can find a spot for it.
It must have another bracket or location as on my 2G my knock sensor connector is on a bracket so it is in a spot. Will go out later and nab a pic of it as i believe its now under the thermostat housing

I did not get to go check last week as it was raining, but i looked today and i seem to have removed this bracket as the connector is there but just cable tied to another section, guess when i was building parts i removed things i did not want
