Default What is this gasket?

I found this sitting on the floor board just under the pedals this morning. Looked up the parts diagrams and canít located what it is for, figured maybe something to do with the AC/heater vents? Itís a red hard foam gasket type thing. Unfamiliar with its shape as to what it could go to. Thoughts or concerns?

Thanks for confirming my thoughts. Clearly not a singular part that can be purchased and replaced. Canít seem to find anything remotely looking like a gasket for the AC parts in the diagrams

I think it's probably comes attached to one of the ducts... If it fails/crumbles/falls off, either live without it, find something equivalent, or figure out which duct it was attached to and replace it the entire duct.

There is one duct that goes right across underneath the drivers footbox from the center section to the side. It is also perhaps the most frequently removed duct to get access to the stuff under the dash, pedal switches, throttle encoder, etc. so my guess is that it is from that particular duct that the foam came from.

I’m not going to worry about it unless without the gasket it creates a rattle sound that overpowers the current loose screw/washer rattle I have under the dash somewhere. If anything it probably will allow more warm/cold air on my toes.
