I was driving my car a few weeks ago listen to FM Radio in 3-ch mode. All of a sudden all the speakers cut out with the exception of the surround sound one on the top of the dash. I called the dealer and they said this happens occassionally in three channel mode when the FM signal gets weak. Ok, fair enough I guess. It did it again though the other day. I was in Dolby this time, listening to a CD. Any thoughts? <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/confused.gif" BORDER="0">

Behind your passenger seat, I believe there is a floor ac vent....put a peice of carboard behind it and let it red-direct the air to your amp....

Agreed. Yes jims fan thing is cheap, practical, and in the long run the best option (btw impressive, I would have never thought of that). My AC option was more of a "you can do this until you put in the 12v pc fan, temp fix"

Re: (JimLill)

Speaking of A/C vents. Anyone have any ideas for tapping off the ac vent and pumping the air into the seat to cool it? My butt is getting hot in the summer time. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0"><p>

Re: (TeeRex)

You are correct TeeRex. They debuted in 1999 with the new 9-5. Saab also innovated the heated seat. The first model year that was offered was 1970. This made me wonder, however why they hadn't furthered the art at all. My 2002 Viggen afforded me the same exact choice that the driver faced in 1970...on or off. My mom's audi has 6 settings...go figure.
