Boy does this always piss me off lol. Get so excited to have everything back together finally and the headache is gone then I see a bolt or something on the ground or in my creeper's tray and I'm like where the F does that go..If you don't have extra parts when you put your car back together, you did something wrong
Pretty much. It attaches to the grill opening reinforcement panel. You have it shown upside down. The arrow prongs pictures point towards the rear of vehicle. It goes right here:I did my intercooler about a year ago so its not fresh im my mind but I actually stumbled on that same piece when putting it back together. IIRC its part of the hood latch assembly. You have it facing down in your picture and a bolt goes trough that hole. I'm sure if you take all the push pins off and plastic in that area you'll be able to figure it out.
Actually, I haven't put the front end back on yet. I have to get one of the guide tabs on the IC welded, as it cracked when I had to bend them out. Hardly even put any pressure on it!!!Silly question for you...is there a corresponding extra bolt? If not, it was probably left there when the car was put together and has just been waiting around to come out and baffle you.
