I'm talking about the 4 horizontal openings in the dash right by the ignition. I have never gotten an answer from anyone, ford dealerships, techs, salesmen, ANYONE! it boggles my mind as to what this thing might be OTHER than a possible (but oddly placed) key holder. i can't believe I just noticed it's in the 08s too! What is the point of it... they carried it over even!
Here is a pic in the new 08s:
And in the 06 and other previous dashes: (right below at 5 oclock on the steering wheel)
