Small port cover on right side front bumber

Can anyone tell me what this is for? Its about 3x3 big and pops off easily. Has a plastic tie to keep from falling off. The inside is hollow with grey styrofoam like stuff around it.

not a tie down, that's where you can insert the front tow hook...

I think all cars have that in the front to tow you out of a ditch when needed.

Some vehicles come with the tow hook some rely on the tow truck having the correct one.

If one was used on the Trax in shipping, which I doubt it was, it was returned to GM by the shipper.

Definitely the tow hook. Did anyone receive one when buying their Trax ? Or does anyone use it for a license plate relocation kit ?

Does anyone have a pic of what this tow hook should look like?
Might be a handy thing to have in the car all winter. (You never saw my wife drive.............)
Maybe I can make one if they are not available.

I did find a diagram on how to use the eye, from the diagram it appears to simply be an eye bolt. Now just need to figure out what size thread and place an order thru McMaster.

I have already taled to GM about this part on the car. The funny thing is that once you remove the cover there is no hole to insert the tow hook to. So im trying to find out why its not there, and if they will add the hole for me. Because i want to had tow hooks to my car

There's no hole ?! So it's just a cover to pretty much cover nothing... ?!
