What is this?

Had my car taken back to stock and this was in the Coilovers box.



Excuse my ignorance. Thanks in advance!

its the headlight leveling sensor, it attaches to the left rear control arm. it needs to be disconnected everytime you drop the left rear control arm to install a spring.

This... but it should not have been removed. Does it appear to be broken anywhere? You likely have xenons and this should not have been removed.

Could prob sell it to someone who broke theirs during a coil over install... not surprised the dealer missed this. How's the TDI?
