    the black plastic bit looks like a bit that rests the parcel shelf on the boot lid when shut and the hook type thing looks like the bit on the lip of the boot to the left and right of the spare wheel recess, i may be wrong though...

    Could it be for removing plastic wheel trims?

    The spring looks like a handbrake button spring ... the old one following the recall perchance.
    John K is spot on with the wire 'handle' - it's from the spare wheel toolkit and is for pulling off wheel trims. There is a slot in the foam kit holder for it.

    I've got a Signum, so that throws the parcel shelf idea out of the window RE the black plastic.

    Wire clip/handle - sound like that's sussed, thanks, I'll look for the space to put it in.

    Spring - hmm, my car hasn't had the recall done yet, I had the letter couple of weeks ago and it's booked in to get it done.

    the black plastic part is for the rear bumper. if you look under the back there should be two of them usually if one is missing you end up with a square peice of plastic hanging down

    You mean the two plastic tabs that fold up and clip on to hold the bumper on?

    If so, both clip up as they should, so this is probably no longer needed.

    when i worked for fiat the amount of clips bolts bits of extra trim you would find in a new car when prepping them was amazing it was where the robot had dropped them it registers as an uncomplete cycle so the robot fits another..i have 2 snap on drawers full of clips bolts etc.. always come in handy..
