Hey guys, took the engine out of my 2012 Hyundai Sonata. Only problem is it's been bout a year since I pulled the motor out and I've got this bracket that I just cannot remember where it goes and it just doesn't seem to fit anywhere (covers face in embarrassment)... anyway here's a few pics of the bracket if any can help. TIA

If The Hive can't help – although I bet it can – you might try casually strolling into a Hyundai dealer service dept. and asking them. You might have to endure a bit of humour at your expense, but getting the answer might be worth it.

my guess would be a manifold bracket that braces it to the block but that's a WAG
