Pre-A maybe ?? is this a Porsche part?

#1 Post by Ned Gorski » Mon Jul 09, 2018 12:21 pm

Can any one tell me what the thing with the gray knob is ??? it has a rubber hose connected to the rear .it kind of looks like a small windshield washer pump. i believe the dash is out of a 51 given the metal glove box and the short vents.

'51 owner's manual lists this position as "extra dash button". Backside looks as you say like a hand pump for windshield washers - though I don't know if they had washers on '51s. Could be an aftermarket or dealer installed option. Any markings on the cannister - like SWF?
