    TrunkTool.jpeg I found it in the spare tire area not connected to anything, but it looks like something that attaches to the trunk latch so you can open it from the inside? Just a guess...

    It does look like a handle for closing the hatch;).

    Was the previous owner short:whistle:?

    But it looks like that’s the intended purpose (y).

    It should hold the jack down in the plastic carrier on top of the spare tire.

    Well, if I were Goldie Hawn (clad in a mini-skirt), that might in fact be true, and you might as they say, "…be able to see what I had for breakfast"¹

    (oops, I should have snapped the jack handle properly into its recess before taking the picture.)
