They came from the right had side near the ignition as I was putting the plastic cover back on.
Mitsubishi Mechanic: Wayne Crawford, Shop Owner replied 1 year ago

And where did that come from?

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
I fixed the ignition switch (on left side), as I was putting the steering column cover back on, the pictured pieces fell from the right side. I must have knocked them loose with the plastic cover.
Mitsubishi Mechanic: Wayne Crawford, Shop Owner replied 1 year ago

Hmm. Im not really sure. Did you pull the cover back down and see if you could tell where it came from?

on the ignition is a piece of plastic the same color as in photo so im assuming it came from there
Mitsubishi Mechanic: Wayne Crawford, Shop Owner replied 1 year ago

Can you give me a picture of that?

it would take a few moments,
as I would have to take the steering column cover off again
Mitsubishi Mechanic: Wayne Crawford, Shop Owner replied 1 year ago

Im in no rush. Id rather have as much information as possible and give you the right answer than try to rush through and guess.

Thats the key in ignition switch.

Can you not put it back together? It doesnt look broken.

Customer reply replied 1 year ago

Mitsubishi Mechanic: Wayne Crawford, Shop Owner replied 1 year ago

Can you get a picture of the inside of the switch on the column?

the ignition switch?
Mitsubishi Mechanic: Wayne Crawford, Shop Owner replied 1 year ago

The switch those two pieces came out of.

Ive never had one come apart but if I can see the inside I imagine Ill be able to tell you how to put it back together.

I cannot get any further inside the steering column, I learned how to fix ignition switch because someone else had same issue and it seemed to be simple, the only issue i had was when i went to put cover back onto steering column, that piece has a spring i have no idea where it goes or what position, and i cant see the opposite side of Key (ignition)
Mitsubishi Mechanic: Wayne Crawford, Shop Owner replied 1 year ago

I think its best if I opt out here. That is a part of a part vs just being a part and I dont recognize it. Ive never had that happen. Ill opt out and see if someone else has ran across it before.
