    Could you pleas help me with identifying the component that is pointed to? It is located close to the EMI filter.

    If this component is named L3 it is most probably some inductor

    I believe L3 is the toroid one

    Yes that is correct, could very well be that L3 is the common mode choke like thingy.

    Looks like a longer ferrite bead to me. I have a few. Measure resistance, should show 0 ohm. And perhaps the grey body is not secured to its leads, unless it is a surface mount type.
