you are probably talking about the front hole the gear selector rod goes into...

Gear selector? Through the front of the car.? It looks like a plug that you stick a handle into and crank to start the car lol. My bumper is removed. I assume its not accessed with the bumper installed. maybe a factory build jig?

No, the first response is correct.

It, and the plate on the front of the chassis are for removing the shift rod...
