W210 mystery part

Wassis?





Its been floating around my car since I bought it. It was found near the +ve terminal under the bonnet, right side of engine bay.

Looks like its designed to clip onto something, and hold something down - or perhaps support something? Its made from foam rubber, the clip is black plastic.

Can't help on the part. But I have a question. I'll be flying into your fair city on 12/23. What's the weather like?

My city? Not too bad right now, a bit of rain but reasonably warm for the time of year.

It won't be snowing when you get here.

I think we know that part.

I'm wondering if left = right. Seriously, I don't know which side of his car has the positive terminal. I do know that the steering wheel on his car is on the right side.

I think Tom's batt jumper is on the same side that ours is and that his reference viewpoint is taken from in front of the vehicle facing the engine compartment rather than from the drivers perspective behind the wheel.

I think that's the part that keeps the glow plugs from breaking when you remove them. It was missing on my car.
