Hole where torque converter is

I have this hole where the torque converter is, and wondering if it's supposed to be covered by anything?

Yes, there should be a black plastic plug. You can get it from the dealer, about $8.00 if I remember correctly. Don't have a part number handy, but you can find it on the EPC.

Part # 102 014 0033

Soak it in boiling water for about 15minutes so you don't crack it putting it on! It is somewhat a tight fit.

Thanks ps2cho
Do you know how come it's missing? ie, they fall out easy?
And is it dangerous not to have it there?

They get brittle with age, then they crack and fall out. Not a big deal if it's not there, one of mine was missing for several months before I noticed. Best to have that hole covered though, prevents road debris flying up in there and fouling the ring gear.
