Rear Heater Vent

Does anyone know if the vent behind the handbrake, pointing towards the rear of the car is actually hooked up to anything in the 1.6 active sport. With the vent open, in all fan configuration positions, nothing comes out of it. It doesn't look like there is anything inside it either. Could it be a dummy vent?

Mine works, if it's there it should be hooked up to something.

to be honest i wouldn't be too bothered if it wasnt working as i never sit in the back

It's just something that's always bugged me, not that I have back seat passengers very often at all anyway.

Re: Rear Heater Vent

Turn your fan controls to face and it should work. Maybe the selector flap is busted? It's really easy to take off, just take the ashtray/back panel off, then undo two screws to remove the vent.

I always have it open to clear the read side windows! But yeah, its a bit weak unless you crank the fan speed up to warp factor 4!
