    I recently found this mysterious piece resting unattached to anything beneath the center console section where the handbrake lever is located. It appears to be made of aluminum. I have no idea what it is or if it is supposed to be attached somewhere on my 1.5. Anyone recognize it?

    Bingo! You are correct. It fits there perfectly. I never realized that my handbrake lever was missing that piece.

    It appears to be just a rather insecure pressure fit. When I pushed it into place it moves easily and I can envision it coming off easily.

    Thanks.

    You're welcome (or as a co-worker often e-mails me with..."your welcome").
