I noticed that I have a strange bolt with no nut on my engine. It is oddly clean so I am worried that something fell off. Here are two pictures. They are side views of the engine taken from the driver's side and it is an Exige S.

mine looks the same, so either we're both missing it or its normal
I think that is a different bolt than the one I am talking about. Your bolt seems to be on a metal bracket. Mine has some type of rubber thing on it.

I believe that is a stud where a triangular bracket attaches the throttle body, manifold, and engine block all together on an NA Lotus. I had to remove that triangular bracket when I installed my Supper Charger.

Is whatever that rubber/plastic thing on it normal? I can't tell if the bolt is mounted to it or if the rubber/plastic thing is just sitting on the bolt.

Thanks for the quick replies about the bolt, but does anybody know about the rubber/plastic thing on it?
