That's a piece that goes on top of your bumper in the engine bay as a bumper for the hood. It's one of the parts circled in the photo below. There are two of them.

I'm not so sure. The hood bumper stops are round a bit thicker. I was thinking maybe from one of the radiators to keep them from rattling around.

It looks like the nubs that Kuro is referring to have little “x” cross imprints in them. You can see them if you zoom in on his image, especially on the left. If the nub that fell off has this design then it’s likely what Kuro is referring to, but if not then maybe it goes elsewhere.

Side note: I’m kind of jealous over how clean Kuro’s engine bay seems. :lol:

Kuro is exactly right. My brain played a trick on me when I was looking at it. The picture appear to be taken at an angle and not straight on from the side. Weird that I looked at it several times and was never able to resolve it correctly... Until this morning. Now I can't even see it the way I did before.

Oh that picture is several years old and taken when I installed my Morimoto HID kit. The engine is a lot dirtier now. :lol:

To me, it was obvious the stopper was from the top of the bumper given the OP said he found it in the bumper during a bulb change.

I'm sure it popped off, fell onto the plastic cover below and then rolled into the bumper cover the first next time the brakes were applied.
