Guess what this is. Found after a trip to bodyshop

  1998 BMW e46 323i
Had two bungee ropes in my boot when car went to bodyshop for repairs to the boot. Came back with one bungee and this.

It's the long black thing, is elastic and is branded Renault.

Has this No. 7700836268 on it.

I threw it aside when the car was delivered months back, hoping it wasn't a strap that goes around the fuel tank or similar.

Answers on a postcard.

First person to correctly answer what it is wins a MARS bar (wrapper).

Thanks, John

may be... how would you attach this to the hooks though? Doesn't look as if it'll fit

It is the strap that holds the coolant control module to the engine compartment bulkhead on a Renault Master van. If it wasnt p-----g with rain I would photograph the one on my Movano (same chassis) Horsebox for you.
  172 coming soon
What size is it?

Going by that picture, im guessing about 2ft6 - 3ft long, by 3inches wide...?

Could be a luggage strap or something...?

Thanks for the replies, I'm swaying towards BrianR's explanation. Although biojo's schematic looks similar...
