Last night I started prepping the car for my sound deadener install and found a vent like thing in the rear passenger side of the trunk on the inner side of the quarter panel. I could stick my fingers through and into area near the bumper cover. What the heck is this things purpose?

I'm going too have to cover the vent on mine a slam the trunk lid and see what happens. Twisted Evil J/K. The designers pretty much think of everything.

My sunroof moves quite a bit if I slam the trunk with authority... I suppose I should do it a bit more gingerly now. Laughing

And also to let the air out of the car when the blower is running, otherwise it would pressurize the cabin and the fan would be forced to stop working. Laughing

Next time somebody farts in your car, you can thank the vents for venting the inside of the car. Twisted Evil

Hadn't seen it before and used the wrong keywords when searching for it. Should have searched for trunk vent... oh well.

Nobody ever sees them, until you drive by somebody who's missing their rear bumper. Laughing
