Unidentified object in engine bay???

Hi

Was just doing a quick oil check on my new 8l S3 and stumbled across this item.....?

Any clues? It comes out of the bulkhead, quite far down.

It's not attached to anything though, it's just resting there?!

Looks like the tool for spreading spring loaded hose clips.   I bet the other end has a pistol type grip?

OK....my bad, it wasn't coming out of the bulkhead, it had these sitting on the gearbox...
