Default OEM STi IC spray tank, where's this piece go? (Pics)

I'm in the process of cleaning out the IC spray tank on my 2004 STi and saw this black piece floating around in the water.






Is it part of the float sensor unit? Is it the float itself? Does it go on top of this?

Yes that is part of the float sensor and fits over the pole. You should also have a tube that fits over it all that clicks in and stops the black bit from coming off.

Thanks, I figured it all out over the weekend. It turns out the tube that fits over the pole (and locks the black piece in) was loose inside the tank as well. I thought it was affixed to the tank but then something was making noise when I was cleaning the tank.

I was able to drop the black piece and tube back onto the pole with some needle nose pliers and clicked the tube in place with a long screwdriver. Not sure if it matters which end of the black piece needs to be facing down but I put the narrow-ended.... end facing down since it had a few numbers on it and looked a little more worn, maybe from sitting in the water.

Not sure if it matters which way it goes on, easiest way to check is to see if the low I/C spray light comes on when empty and goes out when you put some water in.

Yeah, I haven't fill it up yet cause I wanted to test the I/C spray warning light and it works! So I either put the black piece on correctly or it doesn't matter which way it goes on. Final test is if the warning light goes away once I fill it up.
