    can somebody please tell me what this is and what I need to do with it, I did wonder if it was for a trailer although the van doesn't have a towbar fitted at the mo image.jpg

    It's an air vent which someone has struck a bit of Lego onto. :)

    But what's written on the bit of Lego, it looks as if it has a wire going into it.

    Lol, it does have power going to it, the dial on the top has 'gain' written on it and the lever is for 'brake effort'

    Maybe it has had a towbar and that is a control for the electronic braking on a toad .... maybe!

    Just found it ... it's a Unibrake control HERE

    It looks like a server controller for unibrake towing system.

    And here was me thinking it was a volume control for your other half.

    Yup, Unibrake control...........you can adjust braking effort on car being towed; Mines set around middle, which works well with matiz.
