Howdy Folks!

I was hoping someone or anyone can help in identifying this small rubber piece that fell out of my engine bay. As we were fitting and doing some adjustments to the front grill and headlights, this small piece fell out and landed on the floor (front right wheel passenger side). It's about 2 inches long and the width is about 1 inch. Any help is much appreciated! Thank you in advance!!

Looks like an old shipping plug that comes in the A/C condenser ports.
Shipping plug? Thank you @JunkCrzr89 for the helpful speedy response! *scratches head* Wondering why/how that was still there plugged in and it just fell out after banging around the front end? My apologies, this may be another dumb question.. Do I need to trace it back to re-plug an A/C condenser port?

No. That plug covers the ports on the condenser during shipping to prevent contaminants from getting inside. Whoever replaced your condenser dropped the plug when they took it out and it’s been riding inside your 100 since.
