Looks familiar...part of an engine mount?

Might get closer using this:
confirmed it's part of the top plate for the auto transmission mount!

i had to skim through 3 Youtube videos before finding this $48.00 part... yikes, it was left out or missing in others


focus on time stamp 6:12 as it drops into the twilight zone, LoL

& when he retrieves the one that dropped, it seems it was jerry-rigged with weights??? (no idea either for it's purpose)

Font Auto part Art Parallel Line art


i guess the other mechanics or previous owners never bothered to put 39-07Y back to the correct spot during reassembly

ok, here's another youtube of the 2nd gen (2010-2013) with similar rubber/metal bracket/dampener


does the same thing; drops it during disassembly, LoL @ time stamp 15:42

When you see a weight like that it is dampening out something. Without that, there is probably some sort of vibration in that area at certain speeds. The weight changes the mass of the assembly and the characteristics are different.
