Guess this part?????

Hi folks,

Last evening, I removed the front clam (why? I dun'no - never done it, and was bored?). Anyway - attached is a image of a "mystery part" (circled)? It's compressible - like a large door light switch - and attaches to the wiring harness near where the side-marker wires exit the harness? Any ideas - and I tried to find it in some of the parts manuals, but - no luck.... It's on the right hand side, just for clarification...

By process of elimination - I know it doesn't light up the "front trunk light" when someone removes the front clam...

Thanks!

John D.

It's the pressure sensor for the front access panels and it clips into a metal ring that is riveted to the front clam!

Thanks @suferpkt..! The funny thing is, which is why I zero clue what it was, is that when I saw the post from @los above - I went to the parts diagram - and saw what my car was "supposed to have".. On my clam (which the PO replaced), there are no brackets, no rivets holding in "no bracket" ( ) and only one side has this sensor attached (the left side nothing was attached)...

Anyway - now that I know what they are - I've no issue that the one I have is an "extra part"...

My thanks to all again!

I wouldn't say they're an "extra part", unless you have no issue with someone stealing your access covers (and your alarm staying silent).

Well - if someone wants to steal my Exige's access panels - I'll be looking for the "other Lotus" in this great State of NH to narrow down the suspect list...?

Thanks @San.!
