Cup Holder Window?

I was cleaning my car and I took out the rubber mat in the cup holder tray and I found a little window. What is this for?

I've searched and only found one other forum talking about this. Is it to see the e-brake linkage to diagnose a problem, or does it let heat get to your beverage to keep your coffee warm, or what?

Re: Cup Holder Window?

I haven't owned my Lude for that long, does the center console get hot when the heat is cranked?

Re: Cup Holder Window?

I've never been able to get the little mat out of the cup holder nook. Its super glued in there from the years of spilt coffee and soda. lol

I would be willing to bet its simply to inspect the e-brake cable.

Re: Cup Holder Window?

I'd be surprised if that was the purpose, engineers never think of the mechanics. Plus it costs money to create this and there was never an issue about the e-brake cables, and I don't recall any other models with an e-brake window. Also its only 4 screws to take off the back of the center console to access the cable for adjustment.

Re: Cup Holder Window?

Could it be a carry over from a Euro or Japanese model Prelude? Any special features; heated seats, rear window wiper, heated/folding mirrors, rear fog light, 4WS, anything??

Re: Cup Holder Window?

no clue what original design is for. mine was so worn the plastic was broken and it looks as if my ex spilled a coke down in there. Got it cleaned up though.
