What is this and where should it go? I came across it tonight in the engine bay tucked between the fan and engine! It was not fixed to anything - glad I noticed it when I did. Anyone have any clues as to where it should go? Thanks.

Looks like a heatshield, possibly from underneath the engine cover.

I agree, the heat shield from the underside of the big engine cover. Mine started to drop on one side and vibrated on the top of the engine - 2015 1.6JTDM2 dealer made a temp repair with bigger washers and spring clips to hold it up until the new one arrived

Problem solved. You were exactly right Symon cheers bud. Heat sheild from under the engine cover. No clips to hold in place so I've bodged it into position so I hope it holds. Will keep checking. Thanks again.:thumbup:

No worries mate, I am pretty sure there should be clips, but as they are stuck into foam it is possible that they have fallen out.

You could try sticking it in with glue. A moderately heat resistant epoxy should do the trick. :)
