Yes this is the part that people don't see until it falls on the ground. It fits in the frame and the motherboard near where the battery connects. It appears to perform no function except maybe to help support the weight of the battery on the motherboard.

When I work on this series I can tell the ones that have been worked on before because this part is often missing.

I remember that part and when I was working on that model, I know I had some around, but I cannot remember where it went.  I think along the back edge, but I'm not sure.

 

 do you know what this is?
