Okay, I've had this thing in my center console for about 4 years now and can't find any reference to it in the manual or on the site here. Is it a charcoal filter for the a/c(Cabin area)? I think I remember my salesman telling me something like that, but where does it go? It's not very big, about the size of a matchbook. Wm

I looks like the material (wooly velcro stuff) used to squelch rattles and squeaks inside the cabin. If it is you simple wedge it between the rattling or squeaking parts and wala . . the squeak is gone.

It's not a carbon filter; way too small for that.

That's my story and I'm sticking to it (lol)

Seems like it might scratch the aluminum?? Anyhow, I showed it to the service writer when I went to the dealer today, plus a couple of sales guys, no one had any idea. Mechanics either... One service writer said he use to see them in the cars back when he use to prep them but could never figure out what it was, so he just started to throw them out... Back in the glove box I guess.....

Trust me . . . It's used to stop rattles and squeaks inside the cabin.

Most rattle/squeak specialists use this type of material to wedge in-between rattling or squeaking surfaces.

Go talk to the 'squeak specialist' at any new car dealership and you'll confirm this.

Now on the other hand I've been wrong in the past (1 or 2 times at least) so don't put any money on it. biggrin.gif

Tks. I did have a lot of rattle issues and the dealer used some styrofoam(SP?) looking stuff. Anyhow, it seems funny to me that the cars would come new from the manufacturer w/ a product used to quiet squeaks... :rolleyes: Like I said, back in the glove box it goes.

PTEC has it right, it comes with the allu. door sills sold as spare part, they are used to clean up the paint, after removing the old OEM standard plastic door sills, then the allu. sills are glued on the clean paint.

Ahhhhh. I think that's it. It looks exactly like a Scotch Brite pad. What I thought PTEC meant originally was that they are used to clean the aluminum sills. But, then I thought that would scratch the aluminum... Cleaning the paint before application makes sense.. THANKS
