I posted a while ago that I had spare "rubber feet" but did not know what they were for. I just realized one of these same parts has appeared on the ground under my printer. Not sure where it came from. I'm mid-print with no issues, so I'll let this go and figure out where the part is from after the print.

If it's a small square stick-on rubber foot, maybe ~3/8" square x ~1/4" tall, it sticks on the bottom of the bar that holds the bottom ends of the smooth Z slide rods, near the front of the printer. It's there to give more support to that corner, because the big (1") rubber foot at the front left can't be mounted right at the corner and is set back a ways.

If you put a lot of 3-in-1 oil on the rods, it may seep down along the rod and get on the bottom of the rod support block, ruining the adhesive that sticks that little foot on. Clean off the oil on the bottom (isopropyl, maybe...), and stick a new foot at the very front end of that bar.
