On my 2016 Chevy Colorado Z71, there is a "slot" just to the left of the steering wheel. What is it for?

Asked by Apr 15, 2017 at 01:10 PM about the 2016 Chevrolet Colorado Z71 Crew Cab 5ft Bed 4WD

Question type: General

I'm still finding new things about my 2016 Chevy Colorado Z71. While wiping
down the dash yesterday, I noticed that there was a "slot" in the dash just to
the left of the steering wheel. The "slot" is just a bit wider than the width of a
credit card. I have no idea what it's for, and I would sure like to find out. Any
help would be much appreciated. Thanks!

Did you look in your owners manual?

Looking in the owner's manual was the fist thing that I did, and I found no mention of it anywhere. I thought that maybe someone out there might know. Thanks anyway.


That's exactly What it's for buddy I think you have a WT model which means work truck
