Currently own 2001 530i sport
previously owned 1998 323i SE
I've noticed that the air con, when on auto, blows nice cold air around the
cabin but seems to blow warm air into the drivers foot well. This happened
on my previous car also (323i). Obviously, if I press the button to blow air
only from in front, then no air comes through the foot well. I have the dial
set to 3 blue dots (as cold as can be I assume), the temperature set to 16C
(as low as it goes) with the 'snow' button on (air con). Daytime temps range
up to 28C here in the UK at the moment.
Is this supposed to happen? Seems odd that I've had exactly the same thing
on both cars.
Weirdly, during a nice cool evening when I still have the air con on, the
cabin gets cold quite quickly and I don't appear to have warm air coming
from the foot well ..... or maybe I'm being paranoid
Hope someone can enlighten me
