It s a factory piece only used in production. It serves no purpose now. -- throw it away and carry on!

Can anyone tell me why my parking lights won't work? Same car. My husband also wants to know how he can dry fill the transmission?

That piece was used as the trans dip tube seal. So when the car was assembled and the dipstick was added it pushed it into the bottom of the transmission pan. To add trans fluid, put a funnel into the trans dipstick tube. As far as the parking lights, you'll have to look at the headlght switch and wiring. Might have melted or corroded and or come loose.
