I need help identifying a part

So I purchased my wife a 2015 JGC Altitude over the holidays and last night I went to install some Husky Liners X-act Contour Floor Liners that I purchased. When installing the rear liners I noticed something under the front passenger seat. It's a strip of metal about 18 inches by 2.5 inches. It looks like some sort of panel. It has doubled sided tape on one side and on the other side it has the white plastic protective wrap, the kind you see on panels when they ship new cars. As you can tell from the pics below, it is bent pretty good. At the ends I see "6868 RR" and "RR 6884". Anyone know what this is? I don't see anything missing from my Jeep but then I don't know what I don't know. I plan to go back to the dealer and asked them why it is under my passenger seat and does it belong in my JGC.

Re: I need help identifying a part

It's a Rear Side Window trim piece. The nubs are alignment posts and it is attached to the door (exterior) by the double faced tape. I know this because mine came off in the car wash one day and I had it replaced (Car was only a couple weeks old). They don't make 'em like they used to...

Thank you for the response. So it's attaches to the outside of the car?

Re: I need help identifying a part

Looks like the guy at the factory had trouble putting it on and simply installed another one and hid this one under the seat!

It should match up with a post on the exterior...vertical.

Re: I need help identifying a part

Wonder why the double sided tape appears to be melted in a few spots?

To me it looks like the factory installer mostly installed it, realized an error and yanked it off causing it to bend and of course tear up the double-sided tape and never removed the white protective film...then threw it under the seat for whatever reason. "Surprised" dealer prep didn't catch it...but then again dealer prep doesn't catch a lot of stuff at a lot of dealerships.

It's the installation tool for the Husky liners.

Yep. Its an outside trim piece from the rear right side door. It looks like they ripped it back off when it didn't install correctly and it was easier to throw it under the seat than actually dispose of it properly inside the assembly plant. They probably didn't want to count it as a scrap piece and ruin their union labor bonus. Now you get to deal with it because their lazy ass didn't want to...
