Was cleaning the air-filter and noticed this loose part.
What is it?

And noticed that service has lost the another of those finger-screws of filter-box. Should the other box screws be alike? all black abt 20mm philipses?
loose chromed plate.

Support bracket for the coolant hose.

Should be bolted to transmission case. Also a ground wire should be held by the same bolt.

I think i can see the bolthole in your photo (no bolt). Also, think it has slid down the house a bit far

Yes, I was wondering the same, but ia guessed that hole without bolt is bigger than hole in loose part. My grounding wire is in a bit lower bolt, and attached ok.
Anyways I just put the plastic on, so I am not in a mood to take is off again...in rain. But let's see later on.

Ok, got the drawing of this situation: the lower bolt which has the grounding, in that should this be attached too.

+1 on the transmission case. In my experience the ground is on a different, IIRC, lower bolt. No biggie to which hole, but they both should be bolted down.
