    Default Draft near the gear stick???

    Just a quick one to see if anyone has noticed that they are getting a draft near the gear stick area, I have given the site a wee look for this prob and cant find that anyone has covered it. Or is it just me. The draft in question only seems to happen at certain times and for a short period, can anyone help?????

    Have you seen if it 'drafts' when the rear air vents are open or closed??

    Never heard of it but the ducting for the vents runs up the tunnel i believe..Could have a split in it.. Duncan is your man for what's under there..

    I get this aswell, i have also figured out that its only when i'm turning a corner, i just put it down to the power stearing pump stealing power from the heaters or something along those lines. I know thats probably stupidly wrong, but tbh it hasn't bothered me enough to spend more than half a second thinking, ooh it got cold then.
