e34 heater question

I've been meaning to ask Gamite or Miguel this, but I'll just ask everyone.

In my mom's 525i, I never get heat at the rear seat vents in the center console, even if I turn up all the heater controls. The rear vents just blow really cold air. Is this normal?

I think you should REALLY be asking how to fit a turbo in your mom's 5er.

You know thats what she REALLY wants.
PS: I'll check my vents, I never noticed if they blow hot or cold air.

rear centre console vent

For the record guys, the rear centre console vents are only for AC and fresh air.

So yes Thinair, your symptoms are correct and normal... Not to worry.
