Yep, 3M "Extreme" mounting tape. Won't work for what you want (removable). How about velcro on the foam and armrest, put the hard plastic/hook side on the foam and the fuzzy soft part on the armrest.

Dunno about that...looks thin enough that it might be one of the two oil scraper rings. It could still run. I sure wouldn't run it until I found out definitively what that is.
