Can anyone please tell me what this is and where to find the replacement cover for it?

Its located in front of the driver side close to the window.

For the life of me I can't find what it even is and forget actually finding the part for some that is unknown! Help!!!

Is your smart one of those car to go smarts?
It’s possible they left something that doesn’t belong in the car.

You could model a cover for it (or con someone into doing it) and 3D print one, but I would probably remove it.
Was this a rental of some sort before you bought it?

It appears to be the base plate for the card reader system used by Car 2 Go on their fleet cars. You can just remove the plastic plate, but it will leave a few holes in the dash that you may want to cover. Good luck with the removal.

My car is an ex-Car2go and came with 2 holes in that same spot. They don't look that bad, sometimes I don't even notice them.

Go ahead and remove the part. It has no use to you as it was meant for the Car2Go rental service.

Car2Go removed the little computer before selling the car. That's why you only see the base where the computer was mounted.

Non-Car2Go versions of the smart have nothing on that part of the dash.
