Default Name that mystery port!!!

So, does anyone know what the hell the port on the rear bumper on the passenger side is for?

I asked this at the LA Auto Show premier for the '06 model and they had no idea. My dealership's service department isn't sure either.

I popped off the cap and found what looks kind of like a pop-in port, but what does it do?

It's for the rear tow eye hook to screw in. Look on page 9-16 of the owners manual The front one is just to the inside of the right front fog lamp (notice that part pulls off)

(you need to find a new dealership )

This is for tow truck use? Why not center it then?

The dealership first suggested towing, but I thought they meant the hitch for the Tribeca to tow something else. I corrected the rep on this, and I think maybe he just got confused by my misinterpretation...

Think about it, it's located over a main support structure attached to the body, put it in the center and the beam will be weaker there and bend.
