Bomb disposal experts from West Midlands Police were called after a suspected grenade was found in a brook.
Officers were called to the Ludgebridge Brook, off Wollescote Road, Stoubridge, just before 11:00 BST on Sunday.
Wollescote Road was closed and drivers were urged to avoid the area.
The road was eventually reopened at 14:00 BST after the suspect item was revealed to be a car's suspension cylinder, the force said.
Sgt Phil Jones said they had to be cautious due to the suspicious nature of the item.
