    A friend of mine noticed a black latch was open underneath the rear of the model 3. Basically underneath the bumper or so. I didn't know what it was. Not sure how it got open. I closed it. I suppose that was the right thing to do. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    What is it? :)

    Images attached.

    Thanks!

    Note: The first image shows the location where if you got on the ground and looked underneath, you would see the latch. The second image is the latch itself.

    I looked in the owner's manual and could not find it. Anyone have an idea?
