When I got the Meyle control arms that washer was on the balljoint under the protective plastic cap that covered the balljoint. It is not supposed to be used when installing the control arms - at least that is what I was told when I asked the same question. I actually installed it under the nut on the inner balljoint first, but then took it off after finding out it's not supposed to be used.

Yours is in the bag though which is weird... maybe you should contact Meyle and ask? There is actually a Meyle rep here on the forum that you can probably PM - he goes by meyleman. I saw him in this thread http://forum.e46fanatics.com/showthread.php?t=510527
EDIT: Actually i got this advice in this thread - take a look at my post #20 on the first page.
