This part is only found on USA/CDN cars which explains why Europeans would not be familiar with it.Okay, I have identified the black box in the photo bolted to the stock exhaust bracket. Ricambi America calls it a "shock absorber".
I think this means it is a deformable structure designed to absorb collision energy by being crushed. Useful in very low speed rear-end collision to protect the gearbox.
I had bolted it back on not knowing what it was or how it was used.
It is item number "35" in the diagram at

Now I just have to make a list of all the O-rings, gaskets, Seeger rings, et al needed for a gearbox fluid change. The gearbox oil filter is not replaced, just cleaned, although you do need to replace the O-ring for it.
I like the red light version. In combat, all our interior lights were red so as not to affect our night vision. If I do those, I will also do the engine bay lighting.You're most welcome Ray! Thank you for taking the time to make these videos and share them, much appreciated . Of course we all know that a camera will never capture correctly the spectrum and brightness of our LED rear lights but in real life, they are perfectly eye catching red filling up entirely the light clusters for a maximum safety.
Now you need the Smart Interior lighting system so that your foot wells illuminate when you step in your car .
Thank you Ray!
