I knocked this piece off while cleaning the car. I think it came from the area of the driver footwell but I cannot be sure.

Well, I'm at a loss. My 2019 Model 3 just doesn't have any place in either the driver or passenger side footwells for such a filter to be located, unless it's behind the plate in the photo above. Looks to me that that's a filter they decided they didn't need and possibly deleted in the 2019 and subsequent years? Maybe?

There just isn't anywhere for that thing to go in my car. :(

Edit: Maybe someone with access to the Model 3 parts catalog can do a search for the word "filter" and let us know what they come up with?
