2003 WRX Engine Diagram?

So... I'm a little freaked out and annoyed. I have been doing very little to my Scooby because family life has taken over, but... I had my car serviced a couple months ago by a new mechanic. I happened to be under the hood today making sure that an odor I noticed while driving wasnt mine (which I don't think it was). When I opened the hood I noticed to areas within the engine compartment that look like they used to have parts connected to them, and I'm a little concerned.

There is a gap toward the windshield on the intake side right near the strut where an aluminum bracket has some rubber padding on it, but nothing connected, and there is a bracket hanging off to the right of the engine toward the same spot that looks like a female screw held something there. I can share pictures of my engine, but Im trying to figure out if there are critical components that I need to replace?

The first location, in another couple engine pictures I've seen, has a black plastic plate on it (again, windshield side of the stock intake), but I can't tell its function. Any ideas?

If Im understanding what your describing correctly it sounds like the bracket that covers the boost control solenoid. Pictures would be very helpful.
