97 e39 engine question pics inside...

I got the 5 about two weeks ago. runs great but i have a question already. In the pictures notice there is a bolt sticking up about 1". My question is why is it not snugged down and should it be?

The only question I have is how the hell did the cap that is supposed to cover the jump start terminal fall off?
