    Hello all,
    I’ve noticed that hot air will blow into the cabin after some time of driving. I suspect it’s from the engine and is coming from a vent back under the radio area I can feel it blowing when I drive. Any thoughts on where it’s coming from and how to stop it?

    thank you

    I would first suggest spending some time under the dash and verify that it is coming from a vent. If so, check for a cable that controls it and why you cannot close it.

    If I show you a picture, could you give me your advice as to where to look?

    It probably wouldn't hurt, that will give others a chance to look also.

    If that box is missing a cable operated door a thrifty fix would be to close it for the summer or go to the local car parts lot and find a similar unit.
