    What is this?

    Removed the hush panel below the steering column and this broken spring part fell out.

    It is about 1" X 2" with about 1/8" diameter wire.

    It fell out from the corner above the hood release.

    Anyone know what it is and if its important?

    Does your clutch pedal feel different, believe its the clutch pedal return spring. Also welcome to the site!

    Thanks.
    Just bought the car so don't know anything about feeling different.
    Clutch feels like it may be a little light with pedal going down though.
    I'll check into that.

    Don't worry, it's just an extra part GM threw in there when they built the car. lol

    Would have been nice of them if they threw in an extra one that wasn't broken - LOL
    (that's an expensive little spring)

    One upgrade I recommend for all m6 owners is an upgraded master cylinder, makes shifting at higher rpms much nicer. With a bigger master it is recommended that that spring be removed anyways. Not sure what they your plans are with the car, just throwing it out there.

    The tick performance master takes care of what he's talking about it's not bigger just flows better and more fluid. They advise removing the spring on the clutch pedal since there master will cause the pedal to act correctly without the spring.
