Do you mean the chilled air supply to the glove box? I think this came with either air con or climate.
Small rectangular plate at back of glove box, slide it to one side to reveal a hole where the cold air comes out.

I've got it on my CDX. AT the back of the glovebox, on the left is basically what looks and feels like a broken light fitting. It is about 3 inches long and 1/2" wide? Should slide left to right and fitting itself will be a bit loose.

Other way to check is to get upside down and look up at the back of the box from outside it. If you see a 1/2" flexi hose going to it, you have it.

Andy, you might have a replacement glovebox. Check if that flexi tube is back there. If so, you can either change the glovebox or drill a hole in the back and fit the switch. Box should cost no more than £15 from scrappy. Get the hose too and I will see where mine goes, in fact you could do that at the same time and get the 't' piece it must join to.

I am sure the Elite should have this lovely feature that I use every day. It is really useful. Keeps my parking permit cool.

Slight deviation from topic.Chilled bananas discolour,:bananasmi :bananasmi :bananasmi and fruit is best eaten at room temperature for optimum flavour:Cool2:

Looks like it was deleted at the mini-facelift rather than big facelift, unless it's just me. I've got a 98 elite and mr Haynes told me to expect this little cooler pipe when I was taking my dashboard apart, but it weren't there :( :(
