What do you do with the 'extra' plastic part that is in the transmission fluid pan after changing the fluid on a 1998 Ford Expedition?

DO NOTHING with IT.or Maybe a float or sinker 4 going fishing.IT is a Seal 4 the Dipstick tube in the transmission that keeps out dirt until the Vehicle is ready on the Production line 2 have the Dipstick tube Installed.Some people drive the small end into the front pump housing so the seal won't leak(so I've heard)
