I ended up sending the piece back and upgrading to a new 32g Ipod.

I bought the same assembly for my ipod touch 2g frow SW-Box, Hong Kong. I also found a piece of plastic behind the home button. I was convinced it was packaging, it was not! It was the piece that gives you the nice feedback and clicking feeling when you hit the home button. Do not remove!
