what is the purpose of the following (15650497) PRESSURE VALVE - 1999 Chevrolet S10
My guess is that it relieves the air pressure inside the cab when you close the door with the window up. This makes the door easier to close. It could also be part of the HVAC system as a vent. It is listed as a pressure relief valve.
