This is off topic but I have just caught sight of this workshop.  I have massive workshop envy.  Would I be the only one working by torch light, in a small cave, with tools I can carry in a shopping bag?

You have the luxury of a cave? now I'm envious, trust me, you are not alone.

We have a cave/garage. Only ever had a car in it for a matter of weeks. Was rammed with loads of cr4p now has a tumble dryer and freezer blocking the entrance.
I use an 'open air' cave....aka the drive!

It is about pill sized but it would just pass straight through. It is hardened steel. It is GTi specific and not a center console locating peg.  It's a bit of a cheeky challenge because not many of us will have dug this deep in the car.  I'll let it run a few more days then post the answer.  Probably to groans of, that's not reasonable.
If nobody knows what it is then I think there will be surprises at what it is and at the amount of weight two of them restrain.

Good guess, the pegs that the head gasket sits on. No it is not one of them.
The front and interior of my car are, slam panel and radiator aside, fully assembled. This item does an important job at the rear.
