Default Please help. Found snap ring

Please help. Found a snap ring when I took the belly pan off. I have no idea what it could be from.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

This sort of part doesn't randomly come off (it's an internal snap ring). Likely at some point it popped out of some mechanic's plies when a repair was being done. A replacement would have been used rather than search for the lost one.

Aloha!

Thanks, That’s what I am hoping it’s from. Just wondering if I should be worried about it.
Not a good thing to find under your car, but never heard of a snap ring just falling off.

meh, I wouldn't worry about it. Who even knows if it's from your car? I've found a couple of weird things over the years in my belly pan.

Watch out for hot lava!
