Hi guys,

 

Me again haha

 

My glovebox has the vent at the back which blows in air..

 

Whats the purpose/use of this? How do you switch it on and off?

Does it warm and cool?

 

Does it actually work or just a gimic?

 

Thanks

 

Alec

Its meant to be for Aircon cooling so your choco bars don't melt, it rotates to turn on/off, never used it :)

its handy if you use your glovebox as a food storage area, but for the most part, off is the best place for it...

The cooling duct on mine is at the right hand side behind a cover that can be rotated to turn it off, the one at the back is just a vent

I know if you remove the glove box , it's a real pain to clip it back in lol , you need pliers in the center to pull it.

 

On my Mk3 Tianium X it does not have the cooled glove box :o  , it's an extra , how crazy it that.

Just looked and found the vent with the on and off rotator..

 

Will give it a try in the summer to see if it will actually keep my drinks cooler aha

Yeah I had the glovebox out because it wasn't fitted properly.  Preee is right.... the cooling duct is a pain in the !Removed!.

 

It blows cold air regardless of air con btw, but I assume (or would like to assume) in the summer air con on will cool it further.
