Putting my Super Saftey back together and I have come across I part that I cannot figure out what it is. I think that it goes somewhere behind the dash board . I am stumped. Any suggestions appreciated
Thanks

Looks like the support for the trunk latch.

I confirm it's an S3 boot lock retaining bracket, the lock barrel goes through the round hole

Looks like the bracket fitted vertically behind the number plate inside the boot which mounts the lock
