156 fundis please enquire within...

So I've had my 156 for a couple of months now and its time for a couple of questions.

1. My car's electric windows has one touch up and down for the driver, but only one touch down for the passenger NO up. Is this correct?

2. Its all of a sudden summer here in SA and I've been using the AC over the last couple of days. When on full blast the transmission tunnel next to my leg gets pretty damn cold (the plastic surface). Is this correct? I seem to think there's an air leak in the pipes going to the rear passengers.

3. When I lock the car with the remote I get the long beep, followed by another beep a second or so later. I know that it means one or other door is still open. I've deduced that it must be the bonnet. Where is the alarm sensor for the bonnet located and can it easily (and cheaply) be replaced?

4. Today I bought a new battery for my second key and its working fine now. Thing is the second key is missing the AR badge that goes over the screw hole. So now I have a hole in my key which looks pretty horrid. Where can I get said AR badge.

That's it for now. Any and all help appreciated.

1. Thats to stop you trapping someone with the window.
3. The micro switch is hidden in the lock mechanism.

2. Could be. Remove the trim. There's a black plastic tube that routes cold air rearwards. It's maybe come off.

4. Try 'Chris' on here. They're pretty rare though.
