Post Clutch fiasco

Hello all,
I recently went to get my clutch replaced. Got a call saying that a flange was cracked so it was another 150 to weld it. I went to check out what it was and couldnt see the issue but the car sounded like it was running without exhaust pipes. (this was over my lunch break and didnt have much time check it out.

Short story long i get the car back with crack patched and clutch smooth as silk. its right around the corner from me so car didnt get hot.

today i get home from work and hear sizzling from a drip on something hot.

below are the pics of what appears to be a missing part.

I bought the car with an after market exhaust and other than a CAI nothing was ever done to the car in last 6 years (aside from scheduled maint)

any idea what's missing, how it could have happened and how mad i should be?

thanks,

I'm not sure what flange they are talking about. Does the clutch work fine?

The pics are hard to makeout what exactly you think is missing. The best thing I can come up with is that you think something goes in the hole on the firewall that is in fact a moisture drain for the a/c and heating system.

The drip and sizzling you hear is a little annoying but pretty normal.

I got off of work early and put the car up on jack stands. I should have taken pics, but you are correct its the drain. we really took a good look at it and with the ac dryer and other parts right above it that's what we agreed on too.

The clutch is super smooth about 98% of the time. on occasion i do feel a strong vibration but it goes away as soon as i touch the pedal. I dont know about the shop i went to though.... go in for a clutch then end up with a crack and the service engine soon light is on..

thanks for the reply.

The vibration is usually from the TOB.

What was the check engine light for?
