my 07 GTI only has glove box cooling. I do have a question about it though.
Does the glove box door have to be closed to allow the air to come out of the vent in the glove box?
With the glove box open and my hand in front of the vent I feel no air with the fan on high.
I will test my theory tonight on the way home I will empty the glove box and place 1 item in the box and see if it becomes cool during my 20 minute commute.
If it does become cool the answer is "YES" the door has to be closed for the vent to make contact with the air source.
Has any body else tested this yet?
let me know
07 GTI MkV Candy White 6 manual and 17's pkg 1. Cloth seat are more comfortable for larger drivers.
I understand your dilema, I too suffered with a question like this. After much anquish I finally figured out what happens with the light in the fridge when you close the door. My wife was a little cold in there for a while but at least I now have my answer. Like they say, no pain, no gain. With regard to the glove box, I know what you mean. I don't feel the air blow either but damn if the stuff in there isn't cool when you open it up. Out here in AZ this time a year that thing is a bonus that I hadn't expected, another well thought out idea from VW. Hope everyone enjoys spring time. 107 degrees here today, wonder what will happen when summer comes... lol
Well my aluminum flashlight did not get cool on the way home from work the other evening. Going on a 160 mile trip this evening with tha AC on the whole time. I'll check my flashlight when I get to my destination.
I'll keep you all updated.
I keep paperwork, cd's, air gage, flashlight and cd's in my glove box, alas no gloves.
And it was 94 degrees F here in KS yesterday. DAMN that metal gear shift knob gets hot in the sun LOL. Going to wrap that sucker in some leather as soon as I can get to the surplus store to buy a remnant.
Enjoying the heck outa my fast.
