From the very beginning I suspect it is something specific for the roadster  ???

Charles,   I may have to give you a 170220 shirt just because you try so hard!  Sorry ... not a spare tire fastener.

A great quiz  ;D Does the roadster have even a small storage area behind the back of the seat? Maybe it's a lock to allow the back of the seat /the main seat, driver seat/ be pushed forward?

You are very hot
but still not the good answer.
The roadster has no storage behind the back but in between the seats (grandmotherseat)in the back you can hide a suitcase.
you can lock the rear seat with a large key.
It is nice to keep you busy ;D
