What is the door under the dash for? #736141

I have a 1983 G30 and I was poking around under the dash, and on the sidewall behind the emergency brake pedal there is a strange door, about 5 inches by 3 inches that can be flipped or rotated open into the sidewall behind the front fender. It seems odd, perhaps it's for access to some fasteners?

Anybody know what I'm talking about? If I don't hear back I'll snap some photos.

Thanks,

Hans

It's a fresh air vent.

Thanks for the reply. Is it supposed to have a lever on it to be controlled by the HVAC system or just manually?

It should have a little rod attached with a knob on it so you can manually open and close it.

I can see where that is supposed to be, but my rod and knob is missing. Thanks for the information!

No problem! Those parts are a dime a dozen at junkyards.

It sounds like his vent door is there, he just needs the handle & knob. Replacing those is easy.

Yup, my door is there, just missing the rod and knob. I think I'll just fabricate a new one when I have a chance, right now my major issues are the opposite side of the dash but that will be a different post.
