Hi Joe, welcome to the forum. Thanks for the pictures.

I had a look thorough the parts list for the C3 on your year, there are pages of clips and fixings, each with a picture, but none I could see matched your part.

So the mystery continues...

It is a modification fitted to the steering column lower joint fixing.

The reason for this part is to stop the steering column fixing from fully detaching should the bolt become loose.



See parts 71 and 2 in the diagram for the location of the part
