What is it?

There is a plug on the top of the radiator on the drivers side.... What is it?

The previous owner dicked up the entire thing and i need to replace it. So if anyone knows what it is, let me know. It would be appreciated.

pretty sure its used when installing or removing the radiator, it puts pressure on the mounting bracket below to keep it tight in place.
