Do the "fingers" move easily or is it pretty hard to push them? Perhaps it's a guard of some sort to keep rodents out of the cowl. Idk if my 2014 S197 has that.
If no one else chimes in with a positive ID then I'd take it to your local Ford dealer parts guy and ask them. They might know immediately what it is.

Yep, I help set windshields at the glass shop I work at.
Sometimes when the tech is cutting the old glass out, the setting blocks get knocked off and can go down into the cowl or the fender well. Most are just held on with double stick tape.

Excellent IDing this!
It looks like these factory style blocks didn't change much over the years from the SN95 to the S197. I suppose if it works there's no need to change it.
Happy to finally be a productive member of the forum 🙂
