    What is that thing that is in the passenger side kick panel that looks like a baffel?? It goes into the fender where there is a turbine type thing. What is it and do I need to keep it??
    Thanks

    Main fresh air vent for non A/C , Or air recirculation vent for Max A/C. Taking it out depend's on what your doing. /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif

    well I am not removing the AC , I just want to get rid of the kick panel, what does the baffle part do?? if it opened it would just let the outside air into the cab. I was thinking of just making a little oval panel to go over the open hole. /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif

    leave it alone, your AC system was designed to work with it, and its highly likely that it wont function properly if you cover it.
