    Default Cold draft form steering lower panel

    Anyone noticed how much of a cold draught that comes up from where the lower steering column panel is i.e near the tilt handle and the sort of tray jobby that's on the lower panel, was wondering last week why my knees were feeling a bit chilly!!
    Cheers Pete

    I get a massive draft coming from the glove box (I think)... Its shocking when you've got the heating on and you get hit by a icy blast turning a corner!

    Nice one BigMac LOL, I see a lot are getting the draft from gear lever area, strangely enough I don't get this one, just this damn lower panel , thinking more about it, I've noticed it more since I've raised the steering to full height, so now there is a larger opening between lower panel and lower steering cowel if you see what I mean, just can't work out where the draft is coming from though!
    Cheers Pete
