Silver strips in glovebox

Hi everyone - newbie here. Recently took possession (in Australia) of a 2008 C320 CDI. Love it to bits. I was looking to use a Bovee device to stream Bluetooth audio into the fitted Comand APS system but was disappointed to find only what appears to be a 3.5mm audio input jack in the glovebox, and not the expected multipin plug. I now understand that earlier models such as mine did not ship with the multipin jack so I'll make do. But in the meantime when examining the glovebox I did find three metallic strips on the back wall that serve no obvious purpose. I have attached a picture. You can see the audio jack on the left, the 12v power outlet left bottom, and the three metallic strips in the top right of the picture. In the glovebox itself they are a bit to the left of the back wall. (Remember, being AUS this is right hand drive car!) Can anyone tell me what they're for?

Many thanks

They're not 'silver strips' as such. What you're looking at is the glove box exit air vent. You can see through the cutouts in the rear of the glove box to the 'silver' firewall behind it.

The vent is needed as the glove box is chilled from the a/ c - controlled by the flat dial near the front of the compartment.
