My husband went under and rolled around on a creeper and couldn't find where it goes. It has a nut soldered on one side and is extruded on the other. Number 12 110 is stamped on the flat.
Identification would be MOST helpful....Thanks!!
I can't be specific enoght enought to say exactly where the part goes, but that is a standard fastener. It is a flat washer ahd the reason the nut is soldered on is to allow a bolt to be threaded in it without having access to the nut when the washer/fastener is installed in its intended position.
Look for perhaps an outline of a same size washer or a hole that is missing a fastener - probably on a flat surface.
Once you find where it goes, be sure and check the torque of all other fasteners in the area - if this one was not properly torqued, chances are good that others may not have been also.
