Is there meant to be manual control in the glovebox to turn this off. In the winter everything gets very hot! Previous Mini had a flap so you could control the airflow?

thanks

I think its on the upper part of the glovebox.

If you put your hand in and reach up the way (palm facing up) you should feel it!

I think its only on the Type-R GT if I am not mistaken!

Just checked mine. Just a hole no flap or control feels like there should be. Can anyone check before I go to the dealers?

thanks

On my 1,8 LHD there is a circular open / close vent on the "ceiling" of the glovebox on the left side.
Right at the begining of the glovebox (ie close to the passenger).

(So maybe to the right on a RHD car).

just visited the dealers and checked out another type r gt and it has a circular twist vent. My one is definatly missing. Car needs to be booked in to get sorted under warranty!

That's the downside. I hate airco and only turn it on if it's really hot, 35 degrees orso. But I think you could close all vents in the car and only open the one in the glovebox. You'll stay nice and warm but will have cold beers :beerglass:
