Two Random JGC Questions

Thanks in advance to any responses but had a couple of random questions after taking a good luck under our new JGC.

One, does anyone have an idea of what the part with the label is (pic attached)? It is near the rear passenger wheel. The reason I ask is that it seems to rattle around a lot but doesn't seem connected to anything. When I tried to tighten the bolt holding it, it didn't want to tighten anymore.

Two, is having the hole shown in the exhaust (pic attached) normal? Was trying to figure out ways to protect the DEF wiring (previously raised in other threads) and noticed that there seemed to be a small hole in the exhaust. Seems odd but thought I'd ask.

Thanks again!

Re: Two Random JGC Questions

I can tell you based on the part number that that is some type of "Damper", but I do not believe it should be "rattling". You should likely have the dealer look at that.

As for the heat shield on the exhaust, small gaps like that are ok, I am sure there is no leak in the actual manifold or you would hear it.
