I dont really know what else to call it and thats what Mitsubishi calls it!

Its a small plug to the right of the steering wheel.  Mine is missing and it drives me crazy.  If anybody's got one laying around and wants to get rid of it, I will take it.   Black in color.

Thanks Guys!

That whole also drives me crazy, somebody awhile ago was talking about possibly 3d printing some little parts. That would be a good project and easy to do

The latch on the back of that plug usually breaks.  Its why it goes missing in most cases.  I would think 3D printing that part might be difficult getting the grain to match the dash.

Absolutely, getting the grain to match would be impossible with a 3D printer just because of the way 3D printers lay material down in a stacking manner.

I wonder though if there's a way something could be 3D printed that would look intentional, even though it would be different. I might have to think about this a bit as I do have access to a 3D printer.

I do a ton of a work w/ acrylic in my job, I could probably design and make something that would fit in there out of that, but it would be smooth.

A diamond-star would work... Haha

A plug without texture would be better than having to stare at that damn hole.

The clips on the back of mine broke years ago. I stuck it in place with a little dab of black silicone.

If anyone finds a junk yard car with a messed up dash it is also possible to cut a bunch of plugs out of it. Lots of time and effort though, probably not worth to sell them at a price people would go for

I found that plug in a parts car today. It's an original plug but does NOT have any grain on it. It's rough but the grain does not match the rest of the dash... I can upload a picture if anyone wants to see it.
