How do I replace this thingie?

I have a MacBook Air with this thingie broken. I don't know what it is but it looks like a piece of plastic. It's at the bottom below the fan and heatsink. What is it and how do I replace it?

@gigabit87898 what model MBA? I wonder if you are looking at the hinge (clutch) cover. See if this part looks right. If that is the right part, then use this video to help you with the work. Make sure that you make a guide for the rest of us when you replace it.

@oldturkey03 it looks like you just follow the display replacement and then slide the cover off, the wifi antennas are inside of it so you just slide those into the new one.

With the screen facing up and the clutch cover closest to you, slide the clutch cover to the right and gently lift upwards.
