Hey everyone, new to the Subaru and Ascent family, though this one item drew my eyes and just wanted to know if anyone else knows what it is. In the second row door on the bottom of it is a sort of Stem that seems to fit into a plastic part of the frame. I just never saw this feature before on any car and just wondering what is the purpose of this.

Paulzooms is on the money....these pins help keep the door in place, both during normal use and during a collision so that the vehicle envelope is maintained as best as possible. The plastic inserts make for a softer landing for the pins to quell noise, etc.
