Whats this HOLE?

My friend has a 2005 Wrangler and is experiencing excessive HOT AIR into the cabin. He confirmed the source of the heat was not from the heating system. Upon further inspection he observed a 2 1/2 - 3 1/2" hole just under the dash, slightly left of the center console on the firewall. The hole looks like it should be there and not done as part of a modification. He plans on sealing it up with some aluminum tape, but would like to know if it serves a purpose or if it should be plugged? Any help is appreciated.

BTW, couldn't find anything during a search.

That hole is for the shifter cable that goes between the automatic transmission and shifter. If he doesn't have an automatic, Jeep sells the rubber plug for that hole pretty cheaply.

When you have a choice, buy American.
