Climate control question, oh, and a flaky knob....
Loving my new GT, well, 57 plate but new to me.
I have the dual climate on the GT and it has thrown me a little query. When on Auto it seems to chuck the air out of the footwell vents as a pre-set. I want it to come out all over, but the light on the middle dial shows the lower setting. When I switch the air to the side or top vents the Auto goes off and it becomes manual.
Is this a normal thing? Seems a bit odd to focus on the lower vents to me.
As for my flaky knob, the gear stick is a lovely aluminium job, nice and tactile, apart from the cylindrical section just below the top part. This seems to be made of plastic with a silver coating. This coating has started to peel/flake from the top. I assume the previous owner wore rings that "chaffed" on the coating.
It spoils the gear change as I get a lovely alu section on the top, then flaky paint like feel under that.
I've looked in all the places I can think of for a OEM replacement but all I can find are naff after market ones.
Moved over to the dark side
And loving it
