Hi. Swift Bolero 2008, anyone got an idea of what this is for please. Its a plastic grille set into the side of the step well. Its got nothing behind it but does let a bit of a draft in.

Hi,its probably a gas drop hole there for your safety and should not be blocked Im sure someone with the same model may verify.

Just a ventilation grill.
If you block it you may get condensation problems later.
You could trap something like a piece of cooker hood filter behind it if it's really drafty

Yes it's the gas drop vent in case of a leak from the fridge or even cooker. LPG finds it's way to the lowest point.
You shouldn't block it up for any reason. We don't get a draught from ours.

Ok thanks. Its actually drafty around the frame as opposed to through the vent itself. I will resecure the frame but obviously leave the vent grille untouched

Not going to let much gas OUT if there's a draft coming IN.

If there's a draft around the edge of the grill but not from the actual grill that tells me it's already blocked.
The grill should be the route of least resistance.
