Hi,

anyone with a cooled glove box able to check if there is a vent or something in the glove box. i just have a hole but the owner manual seems to indicate a vent which can be opened and closed.doesn'tseem right to me to just have a hole. it does get cold or hot, but i should be able to close the vent surely.

many thanks

Here is mine.

It rotates 180degrees to let air out, not sure it is hot & cold, or just the cold as I don't use it.

I have not got that, just a hole... i'll pop down to the dealer monday and see what they say. my glove box does what the heater/ ac is set to all the time. either its dropped off or not been put in...

interesting experience at the Nissan dealer. spoke to a service chap who wasn't interested he got someone from parts. parts man was a Renault man who said he wasn't sure how to use the Nissan parts system..... I showed him how to use it as this is my 7th Nissan. we found that yes my car should have that part they are going to speak to Nissan and see if it can be done under warranty. part is 26 quid and not in stock in the UK. they have to order from Holland. we'll see our I'll get one from a scrappy eventually. my list of parts to source from scrap yards is growing. don't tell my wife. lol.

I know seems a shame but its the best form of recycling
. The main problem I'll face will be finding them locally. My goto jap car scrappy wont have anything like note for a good few years yet. I love being cheeky when there though... last time I needed a headlight connector for my wifes old micra, he wanted £5. I told him I ain't paying 5 quid for a piece of wire and gave him some swarf out of my pocket, about 70p I think, he smiled and off I went with my electric string. He's good and very negotiable as long as you are not wasting his time. The other jap specialist I know racks everything up but doesnt keep interiors very well.

An update with good news...

Got a call from the salesman I got the car from at my Nissan dealer, they have got and paid for the part themselves and will fit it as well,apparentlyit just clips in. He was very apologetic that it was not picked up when they got the car in. Fair enough. Was at work when I got the call so will get down to them after the bank holiday.

Apart from sticking a can of coke into the glove box and going out for a drive, how do you tell if it's working?Just tried the wife's car outside the house, but after 5 minutes, even with the A/C on and temp set to minimum nowt seemed to be coming out of the vent - instruction book is pretty vague on its operation.
Off to Greece in 4 weeks time, so we'll need the cooler in operation.

The "cooled glovebox" is simply a hole knocked into the tube that feeds the face vents on the passenger side.

To get it to work:

Take the air direction off auto and set it to face
Set the temp to minimum
Take the fans off auto and wind the wick up a bit
I could suggest closing the face vents, but that will probably overwork the fan motor and burn it out.

And make sure that you have opened the vent in the top of the glovebox so air can come out.

Pepo, this will be our 6th trip out to Crete , normally we take the Picasso, but old age is creeping up and I feel the need for the wife to share the driving, hence taking her car. we always make the drives out and back as part of the vacation and stop off at various places for sightseeing.
mnl,
Thanks for the instructions, think we'll just take an electric coolbox with us if I can find space for it!
