rubber piece left over after teardown

I have a tiny rubber channel that fell out after I was putting the motherboard back in the phone. It measures 2 cm x 8 cm. I am not finding it on any of the motherboard schematics I've looked at.

Is this a good question?

Check your measurements? It is not necessary to replace this part. It is a protective cushion for front assembly flex cables as they bend over top of Logic Board. The long groove on the rubber part fits on top of the Logic Board, just loosely sits there, and is held in place by the pressure of the flex cables.

Im glad this happened to someone else already, i was concerned as it just dropped out also.

I believe the measurements are about .2 cm x .8 cm or .100" x .300". about .050" thick with the long groove as stated
