    In the Audi, not me by the way!:tumble:

    Anyway, its located up at the front of the interior lights, right at the top centre of the windscreen, it pulls down and theres a very small hole facing out towards the window when in this position, is it a sensor of some sort? What is it for?

    Cant believe ive had this over 2yrs and still finding bits to play with!

    It is a mini sun screen to 'stop' the sun comming through above the centre mirror. Nice feature - Yes, Does it work - No

    Thats it Scott, mine has a pin size hole on the other side if you flip it down with the part number right beside it!

    Bit pointless really then, but good to know, cheers lads!

    2 years and you only just found it?

    I thought it a automatic man thing to hunt round cars for buttons, pockets, flaps, switches and cubby holes?
