Lost a sensor. How long to get it replaced?

Went to wash my M3 this weekend and found a hole where the sensor should be. I have no idea how it came out but I'm guessing it's not something readily on hand at the service center. I'm curious what everyone's wait time has been for repairs and has this happened to any other Model 3 owners? They put in for a loaner but it's not the same :(

I WOULD call the service center as they can get you the part. The picture is too close and can’t really tell but it looks like it the service plug/flap that allows you to jump the car so to speak.

PS do you realize you can upload pictures.

Sorry, the upload image was erroring out when I created the post. Trying again. So I may be wrong that it's a sensor which would be great news!

id assume its inside the bumper because if you unplug one, it will disable the rest of the parking assist, at least this is true for the model s

mine popped in after washing too. I can feel it in the bumper but cannot retrieve it so i'm going to call SC. I know the sensor still works because the car chimes immediately when i drive forward (just for a few seconds).
