Cabin Heat

Has anyone suffered from the Vents letting hot air into the car even with the heater off?

The Engine is never goes above 90degs and the hot air still comes when temp near 50degs. Really noticible when gving it 3000rev+.

Been looking at the old thread -

Does it sound like an air compressor problem?

Radiator was changed about 5k miles ago.

I solved a similar problem by adjusting the distance of the outer sleeve of the heater cable to the end of the cable itself.
Take off the centre console (see this forum for tips on how to do this). Then find the heater cable and the screw that attaches the cable to the centre console. Adjust the length by giving the little clamp a few turns.

I has been a few years since I did this, and I cannot now tell you whether the cable should be lengthened or shortened. But you should be able to figure this out quite easily.
