I took the panel off the drivers side rear compartment above the wheel well and noticed this White Plastic part that has what looks like two small tubes on the left and right side being held in place but between them is a larger perhaps 3/4 inch in diameter plastic piece molded in a roundish manner that looks like it could hold something if it were simple snapped into place. Does not look like an accidental design but is made to hold something in a useful and meaningful way. Does anyone know what it is for? Can someone else remove that panel (knobs twist with your fingers) and take a look to see if yours is the same way?

No the spare tire jack and all other parts for the duty of changing a spare tire are on the passenger side behind the 6 disc CD changers which simple swings out of the way to get access to those tools.

Zetecturbo can you post a picture of a wheel brace used for opening the wheel nuts? I am not aware of having that and all parts necessary for changing the wheel are located on the right side of the vehicle.

I have the same thing on my 05 ML and I don't have anything attached to that bracket either.
My 98 ML has the first aid kit under that panel. My 05 ML's panel doesn't have the finger grips on the knobs, like the right hand side, so I just assume that panel was not intended to be opened and has no service function.

Can you show the rest of a picture of a wheel brace?
