Dual Zone Climate Control - If one side was warm and one side cold..

...with the passenger side being warm and the drivers side set to cold, does the two central air vents each blow hot and cold air?
Problem with (I don't know if its a design flaw) the dual zone climate control is when the wife wants her side warm and I want my side cold, the central vent seems to blow more cold air than warm air on her side (shes specifically said RIGHT THIGH) even though the vents aren't pointed on her side I don't get where the cold is coming from! So I just end up turning off dual zone and setting both sides to the same setting (then I start to sweat..)
Has anyone else had this problem?
Cheers

If the passenger side is set to hot and the drivers set to cold then the passenger side central vent will blow hot and the drivers side central vent will blow cold and visa-versa.

You can move the central vents so the one on the passenger side points at the passenger and the one on the drivers side points at the driver.

The Missus and I are the opposite way round to you - she like it cold and I like it warm - I don't have a problem using the dual setting (it even comes out different on the foot vents too).

I've also noticed that the glove box vent is controlled by the passenger temperature settings

I've tested it out again and yeah you're right the passenger side central air vent will blow whatever heat she wants but shes still getting a really cold draft on her right thigh (and she repeats again, RIGHT THIGH) even though her central air vent is pointing towards her and mine pointing towards me... :S

When you're using the dual setting are your heating settings set only a few degrees from each other? Most of the time mines on 16 degrees and she has hers on 21, but the fan is only set to 2/6 which isn't exactly blowing like a hairdryer so I don't understand how shes getting a cold right thigh..

WOMEN MAN!!

Are you not using it on auto then ??

Try setting auto, then dual controls enabled and then set the temperature - the fan and which vents are active are automatic so should blow correctly

I don't really use the auto function anymore as everytime I set it to a level (e.g 20 degrees) it either feels too warm or too cold after like 5 minutes of driving - you'll need to reset it another setting every so often.
Meh, I'll try it again when I get home from work.. will report back later!

When you set the temperature it should maintain that temperature when set to auto - sounds like your aircon is faulty - read this Climate Control - Civinfo Wiki
