ok guys, this may seem dumb, and i might be missing something obvious, but what on earth is that grill for on top of the dashboard? i mean the one right on top in the centre. on some models the alarm led is located there too. i cant fathom what its for, and everything must have a purpose. cant find anything in the manual and i've read most of it.

having never seen a car with a windscreen heater, and not being able to figure out what this damn thing was i thought maybe its a separate heater. well with the sun today i saw the fine wires in the windscreen for the windscreen heater so its not that. not sure about a pollen filter either. why the holes?

this is just a pic from the net of a LHD opel. its on top, to the right of the instrument console. this model has the front camera too, which is that little box on top of the 'object'

Off topic .. but how come the LHD models have that little storage hole underneath the light switches and also the black surround around the gear lever looks mint !!

im pretty certain that like some french cars we are victims of cost cutting. i think just behind that is the fuse box. their glove box is full size. GM just doesnt swap the fusebox over to the right so we end up with half a glove box and no cubby hole. any one from europe who can confirm as im assuming from what i have seen from peugeot.

I was thinking this the other day too. I was cleaning inside my car and when I was cleaning the inside of the windscreen a bit of the spray I used went onto it and kind of dripped down....so I started to wonder what the vent was for......

2 on the back doors, 2 on the lower front doors, 2 tweeters on the door latches. thats all 6!
If you get the infinity system on the Adam there is a speaker under the grill.

There is space for one as I have had mine off. Could not find any wires for it tho.

ok. speaker looks likely, but that makes 7 speakers

So I checked out that video and in the Corsa D it most definitely is a speaker. Now, seeing as the D and E do have many similar features I'm thinking that it could also be a speaker. But as there are 6 speakers in the car as marcopolomt mentioned, then I'm thinking this one other speaker may be to do with the Bluetooth/Siri features?? Like when you hold down the phone button to call someone by saying their name?

sounds plausible. handsfree speaker and mic.
