Default This isn't normal is it??

I went over to a buddy's house last night and we went together for him to look at a fox convertible. I crawled underneath and snapped the pic below. I didn't have my stang with me to crawl under to compare, but isn't there a key piece missing?

Its an automatic so its not really nesseccary but one should be on it. If it was a manual then yes the clutch would be shot in no time.
