Question Identifiy this part?

I found this floating loose in the battery compartment in my 97 D90 along with some tools left behind by the previous owner... It's likely garbage, but thought I would ask before before ditching it.

Thanks.

Paul

That there looks like the wading plug that goes into the bell housing. It's so water dosen't fark up your clutch/torque converter.

Clutch housing plug and, in case of Tdi, timing chain compartment plug also.

It definitely belongs to the truck, I have a spare in each of mine. No idea where it goes.

Not really but technically yes they are.. If I recall, and I will look it up to verify, the manuals say there should be 2 of those for the V8s. You are only supposed to use them right before going into deep water and remove them right after. My 94 had them as does my 97. I dont recall which manual I saw them in but I do remember reading that the V8 do use them if you follow the "letter of the manual law".

Edit: NM.. I must be totally wrong. I just read through both the manual for my 94 and the 97 and didnt see any reference to them. I must have had a copy of the directions for placement of the wading plugs printed out for some reason or looking at it on a Rave CD or something because I rember reading about those plugs for V8 use and seeing the diagram.

That is clearly the lube fill plug to an oscillating latrine brush with a left handed strobal bar.

Trick answer, Kevin. They NEVER made left handed strobal bars, only right handed ones on account of his second cousin that lost his left arm in the water balloon accident!! HA! Almost had us with that one! ;-)

Thanks for the quick responses guys! It sounds like a keeper, though not sure if it is truely useful or even where it gets screwed in on a V8...

Chris, if you run across those instructions for placement of the plug it sounds like everyone here would benefit.

Thanks to all.

Paul

The placement is at the bottom of the bell housing--it is to keep it from filling with water and mud and getting that debris on the clutch. When you are done wading, you remove it so that any debris that may have gotten in can drain. I never use mine and most peoples are located in their tool roll if they have one.
