I noticed this the other day, and have no idea what it is or how it got there:
It's a flat rubber wire that looks like it's been cut. It goes up into the chassis and has no give when I try to pull on it. I can't see what it is connected to.
While we were changing my tires, my boss theorized it must be a grounding wire and that he hasn't seen one in ages. I've never heard of such a thing, but my instinct says it is not supposed to be there.
Any ideas? Could this possibly be there on purpose or should I try to get rid of it?
