I found the below object lying under the driving handle of a 2015 Subaru Impreza. What is this thing? I'm pretty sure it fell off from behind the driving handle. Thanks.

As per advice I was able to slot it back in.

So I guess I will change the question, why is there a screw sticking out? Thanks.

  • Welcome to Motor Vehicle Maintenance & Repair! It looks like a cap which goes on to studs or bolt ends. Oct 3 '18 at 22:15
  • Any identifying numbers on the underside? Doesn't ring any bells immediately.

  • @PeteCon It has a big "K" printed. Another 45 degrees rotation from there to the right, there is a mirror image of "2".

  • What do you mean by "driving handle"?

Seeing it in place answers the question. It's a Stopper.


All it does it stop the accelerator pedal from going too far to the floor.
