Why does the rear air vents have to come with the rear seat entertainment option? UK

Why does the rear air vents have to come with the rear seat entertainment option? UK Specs.

I thought that it was forever standard! Just knew that the rear vents come with the rear seat enter pack! Whyyy? seriously whyyy? Only if I had knew i'd ordered the rear seat enter pack just to get the rear vents! (seems funny abit, not gonna use the rear screens but want the air cond for the rear passengers)

a bit disappointing, really want the rear vents! Is there a way to retrofit it or something?

thank youuu

Even those that do have rear vents says that they only blow cold and don't appear to be linked to the a/c.

I found this disappointing too, I really wanted rear air vents. It gives the rear passengers the option of cooler air if the car gets too stuffy....

5 door, SD4 Auto, Dynamic LUX, Orkney Grey, Verve Interior, Ebony Headlining, Privacy Glass, Spare Wheel......

RE: Why does the rear air vents have to come with the rear seat entertainment option? UK

I've been looking through the workshop manual in TOPIx and couldn't find any legit explanation as to why the rear vents come with RSE.

According to the layout, the vents are not even linked to the mainstream air distribution nor mentioned in the item description.

[Image: en_US.jpg]

Item Description
1 Passenger face level/side window register
2 Side window vent
3 Face level duct
4 Side window duct
5 Windshield duct
6 Windshield vent
7 Side window vent
8 Driver face level/side window register
9 Driver footwell duct
10 Instrument panel center register
11 Cabin air filter
12 Rear cabin RH (right-hand) duct
13 Rear cabin LH (left-hand) duct
14 Passenger footwell duct
15 Instrument panel center register

The climate control system with rear vents is referred to as "The higher specification climate control" and the rear vents are called "cool face option (for rear passengers)" - hence no heating

Quoted from Workshop Manual, 412-01 Climate Control - Heating and Ventilation - Overview

"...Two levels of heating and ventilation are available. Standard specification vehicles are fitted with a dual zone automatic system, which can provide different temperature settings for the LH (left-hand) and RH (right-hand) sides of the cabin. The dual zone system may also be fitted with a pollution sensor to control the quality of air in the cabin. The higher specification also offers a cool face option for rear passengers through the rear face vents fitted in the centre console.

The heater assembly for both systems is installed on the vehicle center line, between the instrument panel and the engine bulkhead as part of the cockpit assembly.

The ATC module controls operation of the blower motor via the blower motor control module, which is mounted on the bulkhead side of the heater assembly casing..."

Think I must be going mad.

When I first specced up mine at the dealers, the rear vents were an option, IIRC about £95, but then the RSE was a couple pf grand, which since I did not want the RSE then it was really asking over 2 grand for the rear vents.
However, i can't find the rear vents as an option now on the online configurator. Is this still an option?

Ordered 17/2/12 Dynamic SD4 Auto 5dr, Mauritius Blue, Pan roof, 20" style 6 (gloss black), Vortex, Ebony Headlining, Ent Pack, Heated St. Wheel, Homelink, Pr Glass, Auto Dim r.view mirror, spare wheel

WTF*

No wonder why my kids were complaining all winter about cold air coming from central console vents.

LR certainly have some basic standard issues. For the price of the car (paid), it's absolutely not worth it, unlesss it's a cheap car and dealers are keeping the big chunk of profit.

RE: Why does the rear air vents have to come with the rear seat entertainment option? UK

I can't think about this for too long because I really do get quite miffed....

I ordered RSE and so have the vents, when I change my car in a couple of years time I do not intend to order RSE again and so to think that I may well be spending in excess of £45k for a car with no rear air vents gets me a bit mad....

And then I start to think about the ambient lighting which is also crap... and a couple of other niggles also raise their head. I ADORE my Evoque and at this point would intend to buy another as my next car but these niggles can surely only be down to cost cutting (?) which IMHO is not acceptable on a car with such a high price tag.... I wonder if the time will come when I no longer swoon at the beauty of the Evoque and that fact married up with the niggles will change my thoughts on my next purchase!?!? I hope by the time I decide to swop my current car my niggles will have been rectified....

Sorry for the rant!

Ali.

Those are the ducts on the floor, under the front seats.
