Empty plug under door panel

Post by shift74 » Fri Sep 14, 2018 10:40 am

Hi, guys!
Does anyone of you know what is this empty plug for? I found it under passengers door panel but I guess there is another one on drivers side too.

I would guess it is something to do with the auto door locking when moving off, but not fitted to UK spec cars.

hmmm, wonder how easy/difficult it would be to get that feature to work. :?: :?:

Have owned around 10 cars in my 50 year career as a motorist--and on not one or them have i personally ever had to remove any door panel after a years ownership( a horrible job--and always ultra difficult to snap back!). Forgive my politely asking--but I wonder what inspired this "investigation" in the first place?
Was the window regulator at fault?.......was there something rattling about within the panel?
I am intrigued?

I just wanted to add some self-adhesive sound insulation on the inner metal side of the door . I am obsessed by the idea to make the car quieter. The effect is very good.

I think there are more than just a few members here that would be very interested in your findings! So please report on your endeavours😎👍

So far I have finished my project on the two right doors. I will take some photos when it comes to other two on the driver side. As for now I can tell that there is no fabric insulation on inner metal side of the door. Not even a tiny piece of anti-vibration /damping/ tape.

Wow! That's unusual! Whenever I've had a door panel off for whatever reason in the past, there's always been a sheet of damping material stuck to the metal.
