That's your fetzer valve. I suggest you put it back in post-haste, you might end up burning the ball bearings if you don't.


...Just kidding, I'm afraid I don't know, could it be a drain plug for the body tub?

Looks like an interior trim plug.

As a side note, I've knocked off the plastic seat lever thingy on the left side of the driver's seat when getting out. Crazy glued it back on and it's now tight. I suggest you guys check yours.

Same thing happened to my seat lever knob, I had to glue it back on also. Works like a charm now.

That looks like the plug that belongs on the right side of your steering column.

Fetzer valve . . . I should have known (good one). Clue, it came off while scrounging around between the tranny and the seat boxes UNDERNEATH the car.

Thanks for the suggestions though.

I understand you found it while UNDERNEATH the D90, but stranger things have happened. You also might want to check the plugs on both sides of the seatbox as well.

How big is that fetzer valve? Is it made of rubber? I agree with DJ, looks like one of thoses little plugs on the steering colum or dash. There is not too much between the tranny and the seat boxes, just some wires, the speedo cable, break lines and the fuel line.

DJ - now that you mention it, there was a hole on the right side of the steering column. I put my aux lights switch there, you may be on to something. Now I have to figure out how it got under the car.

Mike, the Fetzer valve is pretty big because it controls the discabobulator, but it is infact made of rubber.

if you don't need it anymore, let me know if you want to sell it. I lost mine and now I got this big hole on the steering column cover.

I was looking through my parts manual (for 93/94/95) and found a "plug" that looks very similar to the one you posted. It was located on the bulkhead right by the tranny tunnel on the passenger side. The plug in the diagram wasn't printed very well so I couldn't make a 100% postive id. If you'd like I can can the page in and send it to you? Let me know.

DJ - Thanks, that is exactly the spot where I originally found the plug lying underneath. I will crawl under this weekend and see if I can see anything. I have one of those cheapo ebay dvd manuals - let me check that first. Thanks for the help.

That is the plug that goes on the right hand side of the steering column, opposite the starter switch (the switch is on the left, this plug is on the right)
