Question Brake Master Cylnder/Booster Plugs

I put the battery back in my car today because the weather seems to be warming up here in VT.
I noticed that one of the little plastic cap/plugs on my master cylinder/booster is missing. It's the bottom one.
It was there in December (I have pics to prove it) when I stopped driving it and had it shipped from CA to VT where it has been sitting for the last 2 months.
I tried looking around to see what this plug does but no luck.

Can one of you guys let me know 1) what that bottom cap/plug does and 2) is the car usable without it?

Thanks

Are you talking about the part circled in red?



If so you are OK driving the car without. I have the MC/Booster assembly on a bench right next to me and the holes are just to access the retaining bolts for the rod to the pedal assembly. That plastic piece is just to keep crud out.

Yes, I was, thanks!

Sounds like I can jerry-rig this or replace at my leisure.

I'm really curious why is went missing since it was there in CA and gone in VT. Maybe it came out during the trip or when I drove it the 7miles from the drop-off point to my house. Maybe it's down behind the gas tank area.

Reviving an old thread. Anyone know where I might be able to get a couple of these plastic plugs? Seems like they are the only ones in the trunk area that are NLA.
