In the rear driver side fender well, around the power antennae motor, are 2 items I would like help identifying. One is a white piece of plastic, about 10" long, with 2 rows of little "doors" with rubber covers that you can push open. What in the heck is this thing? Also, same area is a tube with a round foamy thing at the end. What is this thing? Thanks...I looked for a diagram in Helms but didn't see anything.
The first one is a pressure reliever for when the doors or trunk is shut. (It also helps with ventilation.)I had problems with one of my old cars always fogging the windows and it was because the vent had gotten sealed over with Dynamat Exteme. The second is a drain tube.
Still no luck Not using Photobucket or Flickr...just trying to upload pic direclty from my laptop. It is a 99kb file, so it's not too big. Message I keep getting says "unable to move/copy file". I just don't know what I could be doing wrong. The item I am curious about is small-diameter black tubing, tied, with a round cylindrical spongey thing on the end. Thanks if anyone has any thoughts based on that description, sorry I can't seem to post a pic!
ActionJackson, I do belive you are correct! Thanks...I didn't handle it, guess I should have!
Ari One, thanks to you, too...I'm surprised the photo upload issue would be such a PITA...but at least maybe I have a way to get it done now!
The good news is the trunk and fender wells are all dry now...no water leaking in now. Still smells kind of musty, and I still have some rear glass condensation...I'm sure there is still moisture in the carpet/liner. I'd like to get a dehumidifier to run in it for a few hours, unless somebody else has a better suggestion maybe?
