I saw this one in my rent a car but I am not too sure the purpose of it as no heat is going out of it? Is it just decoration? Car

    I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it is not about tourism. – Neusser May 20 '19 at 7:41
  • Heat comes out easily when you engage de-fog mode in air conditioner – usr-local-ΕΨΗΕΛΩΝ May 20 '19 at 8:32

    Sorry, but questions about "how does my car work?" are off-topic, here. – David Richerby May 20 '19 at 9:05

    @DavidRicherby but this is a question about how a rental car works. – phoog May 20 '19 at 13:59

    @DavidRicherby I disagree. There are other questions here about things that might be encountered by travelers or might be encountered by people living in their own towns. There's an entire category of questions (identify-this) that survives essentially because a community of travelers is well suited to answer rather than because the questions themselves are about travel. In fact, under the current version of the tag wiki, this question arguably belongs in the category, since rental cars are a "travel-related thing." – phoog May 20 '19 at 14:14

It's for removing condensation from the side window. Air comes out of it only in the defrost/defog settings.
