What goes here?

Mystery hole in my dash. What goes here and where can I find it?? The PET diagrams don't seem to show it.

that may be the auto heat sensor. IIRC, it can be found in one or two places depending on the year.
There should be a little hose with an inline fan to sample the air if it the heat sensor.

On my '84, that is the place for the 3 speed fan switch, for the fan in the smugglers compartment.

Good luck finding the bit that goes there. I found a nice black flat plug at Home Depot that fits perfectly.

Whooppssssss...correction from my earlier post.

That is where my 3 position fan switch for the footwell blowers lives, came that way from the factory.

The smugglers box fan switch is in the center console on the top left.

Sorry for the miss que.

I have the same fan switch on a 84 which is a Euro. I Just checked a 85, same thing, three position switch. So it looks like it is a place for that switch in those years, however I just checked a 88 US turbo and it has a what looks like a heat sensor with two horizontal louvers which must sample the air temp and activate the fan automatically in the later years.

As did mine. My footwell blowers never did work, and I never got around to troubleshooting them.

930cabman, I'm very happy with the heat in my 88!
Between that and the fantastic heated seats that go most of the way up your back, I can take the car out on crisp (read friggin cold) November mornings when the boost is super strong and these late season drives are my favorite.
If it's not enough heat for ya, get the heated seats
