Part fell off - anyone know what it is?
#1

300 miles on my 2022 venice and I heard a rattling on a drive this morning.  I found this part rolling around in the storage compartment behind the seats.  Does anyone know where it came from?  I thought maybe the roll bars, but bolts seem to be in place at all 4 points there?

Goes in a clip at top of storage compartments behind seats. I think it is an extension for wrench, maybe wheel lugs. HTH.

Hmmm... I am still at a loss in regards to what it does and where in the wheels it is used.
I bought mine used and I can feel the clip RustyTeeth mentioned, but there is nothing there.
Do I need one?

I'm getting from others that a regular socket is not that easy to fit as there is little clearance. And not enough for an impact socket. regular one barely fits. it is a heave tool. I would get one. mine (lugs) 2022 Venice are recessed in there pretty deep.  Now that I think of it I should go see if all my lugs have the proper torque settings. will post the value after i research it lol!  This thing reminds me of a impact socket. 

21mm socket on 2018 still verifying specs 12/8/2022

for a 2018 VV I founds lug specs 85lbs
Fastener Specifications Application Specifications Metric English Trailing Arm to Frame 215 Nm 158 lb. ft.
Coil Over Shock to Frame 72 Nm 53 lb. ft.

Oh, I see. And here I thought theses things (lug nuts on a wheel and the well it sits in) were pretty
much standard on similar passenger vehicles. But of course not !     :-(
I tried my impact sockets and none fit (these sockets are not metric).

Since I already know better as to (on  Vanderhall) TIGHTEN just about every bolt and screw I find,
now I will have to hunt for a lug wheel nut socket that fits.

That socket is unique - made to fit your lug nuts.  It's a security thing, so someone can't quickly steal your wheels.  There are many versions of them.  Need to go to a tire shop, or Vanderhall dealer if close enough, to find out which one you need.  It should have come with you ride.  Some people find them rattling around in the holes under the seats.

The Venice I bought (not new) didn't come with it. All lug nuts are "normal" and look similar.
On another car I had with nice wheels, it had on each wheel a "different" lug nut that required a
special keyed socket. However, Any lug nut wrench was able to remove that special one with its key
and all the others. On my Vanderhall, an impact socket I have that would fit the nut, won't go into its
well to be able to remove the nut. At my garage, I prefer to remove wheels with an air tool.

Thanks for the input.
