Hints on how to get this back on my car

HI, posting here hoping that someone's seen and replaced one of these before. I spotted this loose in the near side front air vent whilst clearing out the leaves. I've been able to get it out from the vent, but no idea on how to get it back. I can't see or feel an equivalent in the off side vent but I'm guessing that's because I can't get my hand in far enough.
 

 
For reference, it's ~33cm long and 5.5 cm wide ( the two pictures above are the same thing but on different sides. )
 
Any hints  on how to get at the cavity so I can get this back, thanks in advance.
 
The car is a 997.2 Turbo S ( 2010 ).

Maybe it's off someone else's car!  Those vents hoover up everything!
Personally, I'd pop into my local indie and ask them about it.

I'm speeding because I have to get there before I forget where I'm going.

HI, thanks for the quick reply, I should have looked for this first, the only marking I can see on the part is this
 

 
I'd be guessing if I tried to interpret this, if indeed it's a part number.
 
Thanks again

Ahhh, good point, my initial thoughts were that it's worked loose after some work in that area earlier in the year ( new front lower spoiler ), I'll phone my local Indie tomorrow.
 
Thanks

Thanks for this and the info about that marking. That's useful, it doesn't look like it's any of those components, it may be as tscaptain suggested "from another car", I'll dig into the parts catalog further and ring my local independent dealer tomorrow ( who did the work on the lower front spoiler ) to see what they say.
 
Thanks both for the input, much appreciated.

If they were Porsche parts they’d have Porsche part numbers clearly stamped on them eg 996.112.45.87
