Don't know where this piece goes

I was taking apart my K70 to fix the solenoid when this piece came out and I did not see where it was originally. I'm hoping someone will know where it goes and might even be able to attach a picture?

I'm pretty sure that's part of the AFS-AFC-MF mechanism. See pics in the definitive thread by photogem inc my post #13:

I was able to find where the piece goes! It covers the corner on the bottom.

Yes! I performed the aperture test and it seems to work great now.

@tonyzoc: As you repaired your K-S2 and the K-70:
Some K-S2's have This kind of washer .
I had repaired 2 x the K-S2 but never came across it, so I did not mention it in the Tutorial for the K-S2 Solenoid repair nor the one for the K-70
Did you come across it in your K-S2 or K70?

No I didn't have any parts left over with either camera.
