Default just a stupid question

I had my windshield replaced on my 2013 GS and when I looked at the cowl there is a small open hole on the passenger side that I don't remember seeing before. wonder if there was a fastener in it at one time or is it a drain hole that I never noticed before. By the way I will never let anyone try and repair a stone chip . It looked horrible and the guy used a cigarette lighter to heat the inside of the glass to speed up the cure . it caused distortion in the safety film. Then the insurance company asked if I wanted the same company to replace it. Really?? I took it to a safe lite brick and mortar shop in Spring Hill Fl. and left them do it inside there building. They did a great job.

There is a drain hole there....Pour some water close to it and see if it works.

thank you that was it. more than likely had dust in it all this time and I never noticed it. The shop probably cleaned out the hole. I only put sixty miles on it this past year trying to keep it pristine and having way too much fun with my 2017 Ram R/T sport truck. I will be driving it more now as I lost a hundred pounds this past 7 months and it feels so much better sitting behind the wheel again. No more snacks and donuts for me.

​​​​​​​Just make sure you water test it the windshield top to bottom all over. I had my front windshield replaced. They didn't do a water test but lucky I seen the leak running down the passenger side floorboard and dripping from the vent on the A-Pillar. I had to take it back 2 other times but safelite were patient and so was I to get it fix.
