Under the carpet in the hatch area on the passenger side where the battery is there appears to be molded area to store a tool. Does anyone know what tool is supposed to fit in that area? There is a picture of the tool on page 10-67 of the owners manual.

There is a funnel for adding fuel with a gas can and brake rings...... I think that's all.
Sinner, did you get the funnel? I didn't, and haven't asked my dealer for it yet.

Found the funnel; it was in the plastic bag with the brake rings.
Thanks for your replies.

Because the car comes with a "cap less" fuel tank filler, and since there could be a time when someone needs to add fuel from a gas can, the fuel funnel is standard with the car. Could it be "hiding" in the below "cargo floor" cubby? Or not shipped, or, sitting on the dealer's PDI workbench?

The front brake rotor cooling rings come only with Z-51 cars.

I did get the fuel funnel. It was in my console. I put in the storage area in the other side of the hatch.

How do you and when do you use the brake rings?

Only when you are tracking the car, and they must come off right after that, i.e., cooling rings must be installed and removed each time they are used. They will corrode if left on the car.

The rings that are attached to the back of the hub and stand off the surface. They get more mass in to cooling air and aide in dissipating additional heat that will be present during extreme hard braking such as during track events.

There isn't one of the passenger side because that is where the battery is.
