Question Mystery Piece from 02 WRX - with pics

Hello,
Does anybody know what this thing is? The guy that sold me the car 1.5 years ago didn't know, and neither did his dealer. He said it just showed up in the car one day...

It made of a soft, flexible rubber and has a rectangular depression in the 'bottom' part on the picture. The I/C button is for size reference...and maybe to show off a bit...
Thanks and good luck![IMG][/IMG]

Does it have any kind of part number on it? If so, call the dealer and have them look it up

Have a Nice Day?

'where in the car was did it "show up" at?'

He may have told me...but I've long since forgotten
Under the seat maybe?
I haven't ever taken the front seats out though - maybe it goes under there??

I'm afraid that it fell off of a child seat (his, not mine) or something and he only thinks it's a part of the car. I have kept my eye open for it when removing my rear seat (strut bar ) and center console (major ratsnest of wires .) I haven't taken the dash apart much...

Frankly, it doesn't look critical - but still, I want to know

Thanks Again

True, but I love the idea of AWD and 4WS together. I had a Prelude with 4WS - loved it (but not as much as AWD )

Well, it's a bracket meant to connect two pieces in a perpendicular manner.

Doesn't look like it bears too much load, and the rubber is most likely meant as a vibration damper.

I say use it as a desk mount for a photo frame

Bumping my 2-month-old thread. Maybe some new eyes see it and can tell me what it is.

Thanks, all!

^^Nope...

It's only 4.5" across the long part on top.

The little round nubs are 4" from center-to-center.

The base is about 2.75" across.

It's about 9/16" deep at the base.

Nope...good guess! That's if you mean: Is it the piece you remove and reattach when you install the Autometer gauge cluster bezel?
It's made of the same kind of rubber though.

I don't think it came from the center console, I had mine apart this weekend and don't remember seeing anything like that in there.

Here is my guess:

A piece of molding from the center armrest? It looks like part of the bracket that you take apart/remove when adding the armrest extension to the stock arm rest compartment? Maybe?

It's a speed bracket. It makes the car go faster.


Honestly, I have no Earthly idea what that is.

^^
Best guess I've seen so far - it would explain why it's lying in the car because the dealer mechanic left it there after removing it.

I got nuthin.
