Components in the interior of the instrument compartment.

This component is in the center of the right-most vertical row. The label above this subcompartment is obscured, but an ID plate identifies it as the lateral guidance computer.

The label at the bottom of the lid instructs the technician to "↑ Mount in Flight Direction".

The paper label at left is mostly unintelligible, but the metal ID plate and markings below and beside it read
