[DML] Re: What is this part?

Good call Stephane.
It is *possible* this shim was used on the facia or a panel but it is
correctly used for the trailing arm bolts to set the rear toe. If it
fell out from there (one side or the other maybe both?) that means the
bolt is loose, bent, stretched, broken, or missing. You cannot just
put them in. If you find either (or both) the trailing arm bolts loose
you should replace them and have the car aligned so the proper # of
shims is put back. It is dangerous to drive the car if the shims have
fallen out and/or the bolts are bent or loose.
