    It doesn't seem to be the exact center. What does it indicate?

    I guess it is the center... The little bubble on the dash isn't centered and that threw me off. Now I wonder what THAT is!

    It is the light intensity sensor for both turning on/off the auto headlights as well as for automatically adjusting the climate control system.

    Mine is exactly in the center as near as I can measure it.

    There might also be pips for positioning the wiper tips, after you've removed them.

    Thanks! Interesting... I wish my car had automatic headlights. I wonder if I can somehow add that feature...

    I'm speculating that the bump you are talking about is the light sensor.
    I'm speculating the arrow on your windshield is just some type of installation marker primarily to make sure something happens as it should happen during assembly.
