I have a pre face lift 99 Avant and there is a tiny vent between the radio and climate controls, anyone know what it's for?

its for your heat/ac. Its checks the cabin temp to adjust the heat/ac blower. At least thats what i was told

He speaketh the truth. BMW and Toyota put that "vent"/intake near the driver's knees. It just checks if the auto HVAC is working
