Question

Those two on the dash. Looks like vent pull knobs. One under the lighter and on the other side of the colum. Never pulled them and no owners manual. What do they do and why two?

The knobs that look like vent pull knobs are vent pull knobs.

Pull the one on the left, and it opens the vent on the left kickpanel.

Pull the one on the right, and it opens the vent on the right kickpanel.

Other things that may happen:

Pull the knob, and the knob comes off.

Pull the knob, and it stays put because the cable is frozen.

Pull the knob, and the vent opens; push the knob, and the cable sheath separates from the retainer, leaving your vent open.

Also:

Pull knob...out pops custom paint job, 33" super swampers, 12" lift, sun roof, new 360 w/fuel injection and turbo.

If you pull both knobs at the same time then you get the dual high flow 3" tuned exaust. LOL just having a little fun.

Actually I didn't even notice those knobs there until I read this thread. But I knew right off what they were for. Ummm, high-back bucket seats.

Do these vents get their air from the cowl area? or is it from somewhere else?
