Anybody with a 453 ED or EQ take a moment and look underneath the back of your car. Does it look like mine? (Photo s/b attached to this message.) I just bought this 2017 Passion last week, and noticed 4 shiny clean bolt hole locations that are on the same plane. Do you have something there that I don't? Anybody have a clue as to what goes there? :shrug:

I would assume the same as Bob Denman. It's typical of manufacturers to cast in attaching points for the sole purpose of managing the assembly process.

I had a 453 ED turning left at an intersection where I was going straight this AM. As they turned, I could clearly see at least two of the bolt locations you have pictured.

@Jebcidic, you are asking about the rusty thing? Yes, they all look like that.

@MineCooky, Not what I'm asking, but good to know. Since the car sat for over a year before I bought it, I thought pieces might be different or missing. I know my evse charging cable is not like what is shown or discribed in the owner's manual, and it came with no storage bag. Then I caught the reflection of shiny spots with bolt holes in them under the car and thought something may be missing (I.e. removed) under the car, since the looked too clean (unoxidized) compared to the rest of the metal under there. But the car runs great, and the charger drinks electricity happily from the cable, so they are just DAE questions at this point.

Ahh right, okay. No, it's normal like it is there. The motor is also beieng used in the Renault Zoe, that's why there are also this now unused mounting holes.
