This part just fell out from under my dash??

My wife was driving my '10 2LT, and she said this part fell on her left foot from under the dash. It looks like a spring nut of some kind, but after looking around under the dash, I can't find anywhere that looks like its home. Any ideas?

OK, so the image won't show, but if I open it in a new tab, it's viewable. The part could be the metal backing to one of the flat plastic nuts that hold the sound proofing to the firewall, but I can't find any bolts that don't have one already attached. I'll poke around some more, but would appreciate any confirmation or other suggestions.

This is not going to be easy, as you have described it, it could be many things and theirs a lot under the dash.
I'd look directly from where the part fell off and start in that area, starting at the lowest point and work your way up..
you should take pics (of the area too) if your not sure & of the peace/part, that could help

Sorry for the problem with the photo. IMG command just keeps giving a broken image error. Trying a direct link. https://www.dropbox.com/s/1vunhavh3l...520_190114.jpg

It looks a lot like a fire-wall-panel retaining washer, its like one that goes over a pin on the fire wall that holds the carpet and
the padding to the wall, instead of a nut, they are usually metal, on older cars, they look a lot like a fake nut..
I hope that helps.. thanks for linking a pic, if you can't find out where it goes, you could stop in at your dealer,
see if they can find out for you... if no one knows or cant help

Thanks 'rat. That's what I suspect too. I was just double checking to see if anyone might recognize it as something else. There are several plastic discs with some sort of spring nut backing them, and I'm pretty sure this is just the backing nut portion of one of them. I still can't find its home, but it's likely up in the deep, dark recesses I can't see. I don't even want to guess where the plastic "cap" part ended up.

Not a problem, I'd just check the areas, that are most important, brake, throttle .. as I'd be mainly worried over, wouldn't want any parts falling off while driving /
Its weird no one has posted that they know what that peace is ??, maybe ask (PM) Chapel.. he, just did his dash, putting in a sweet deck I'm sure he'd know

hotrodhoodrat what's the exact name of that peace? If we know the exact name and search by the name we may see others have posted too?
