Small part dropped out during repair, where does it go?

Hi, I recently tried to install a new screen in my iphone and during re-assembly a small silver clip about 4mm long dropped out, I have looked at all the 4 exploded views I can find, and that part is never there.

Also cant get the face sensor to work at all. It didn't before i put this new screen on, i was hoping this screen would fix that. Tried all the basic tricks (no screen protector, network reboot, the tape & sharpy trick) but it still does not work!

Any and all help welcome!

Thanks. st3fan

the part sits on top of the wifi antenna, it makes contact with the screw and board.

about the proximity sensor. try the "squares cut out black tape" thing with and without the uv sticker. i have been able to get every single one working :-)
