Warm Air In Cabin When Windows Down

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

I hope someone can help me. I've got a 91 Ltd recently. Still under warranty so I would take it back to get it fixed if I have to, but I don't want the dealer (who I don't think knows much about soarers at all) to muck around with my car if I don't have to. Ok, the problem:

Whenever I have the window down or sun-roof open etc, cabin pressuse is lost (obviously) and very warm air starts to rush into the car. The aircon / climate control is off, vents are set to recycle, so I know it's not the vents. Seems to me there is a leak somewhere in the firewall, hence warm air is rushing in. The problem is less obvious with the window slightly open, but more so when both windows are down fully and crusing at higher speeds. When all windows are up and sun-roof closed, there is no warm air rushing in. Anyone experienced this?

Only problem I have in otherwise a fantastic car!

the V8 gets very hot around the transmission tunnel even after driving a short while. This gets even worse with the fittment of extractors that have not been ceramic coated.

Do you know if the vehicle has extractors fitted?

do you have the temperature knob set to hot/cold or inbetween? having it set to hot will still allow air to travel through the lower foot vents even if the climate control is turned off....

Can't really think of anything else off the top of my head...
