So I did my first oil change. I loosened the filter with a wrench and when I reached in to remove the oil filter by hand this fell out. I can't see where it came from. It has foam in it and it was filled with oil.

It looks like a cap of some sort. I removed some of the splash panel. To look for something that was uncovered but no luck. Nothing is leaking.

Anyone have any ideas?

Looks like a plastic cap designed to protect something while in shipment.

Are you 6-sp or auto trans?

Yes. That looks exactly like it. I didn't look behind the headlights. I will check that. I was focused on fittings and lines under the truck since it fell out through the oil filter hole. Makes sense that it could fallen through the engine bay.

I learned something new here today, 5 Frontiers and a Pathfinder and still never saw one of those caps. Great bunch of Frontier owners here.

I have that same cap sitting on my workbench. I did not know what it was or where it came from. I found it in the engine area.
Thanks, I will check it when I get home
