I have a knob whose purpose eludes me. I have checked the manual. It is a black rotating knob in the centre of the console below the ashtray - it rotates quite happily but does not appear to do anything? It looks 'factory'.

Anybody?

no diagram on the knob

update: picture of my knob

is it the knob that adjust the wiper intermittent speed?
Maybe the paint has worn off it.

Have you noticed that your passenger has disappeared out the roof 007 stylie.

It wouldnt be the interior light dimmer switch would it? I'm trying to imagine where it is.

What a nice forum this is. I can think of several others where a posting about a cabriolet and a mystery knob would lead to lots of jokes about hairdressers . . . :twisted:

Check the option codes on the VIN label (on the sticker under the bonnet) against

and see if there are any unusual options it might control.

It is certainly not the wiper speed or the dash illumination brightness.

Maybe something to do with aftermarket audio, phone, or alarm ultrasonics?

Just had a look at the pics of my old 993 (last one) and I had no knob at all.

It also seems that the centre console is different so was there a revamp of the centre console post varioram? or have you got something after market (looks very well done if that is the case) for purposes of stereo/alarm/immobiliser etc.
