I noticed this thing hanging down under my front bumper, passenger side. Looks like it clips to something. What is it and where should it go? Thanks!

Wiring/connector for fog lamps, most likely.

Should have a spot/tab on the body for it to attach to. Poke your head under there and look around to see what's close.
