Here are some snaps of a few mods I've done:

Ah! Can I post photos?

Yes but you have to host them on photobucket or similar and then when you click the image button it asks for the URL for then and drags them off the net.

Right, here's a link to all four snaps.

  1. Out of focus, this switch controls power to the RF receiver in case the car is left in a dodgy wireless area.

  2. and 3. USB sockets to power the tablet to keep daughter quiet on long journeys.

  3. Another switch ...... to shut off power to the recirculation flap and set it closed in hot weather.

  4. Mobile phone holder.

Cheers.

What is the purpose of this mod? Does it help cooling?

He's moved from Dubai so I suspect it was to keep all the cool air from the AC inside rather than keep filing the car with stupidly hot air from outside. Most of us need to do it the opposite way, to keep the hot air inside.

Yes, that's right ..... the default position of the recirculation flaps is open.

I though that the controller would close them at a certain ambient temperature but the car was much cooler with them closed.

Here is Portugal I like the fresh air, so the switch is on to allow the controller to set them open. (well it would if both motors worked!).

does the HEVAC not close it when you press the recirculation button?

I was thinking the same thing but thought maybe I didn't know something about how it worked.

It should keep them closed if the recirculation button is pressed and the orange indicator is on above them...
I wouldn't have thought it would open them up again on power up and reset to open position but can't say I've tried it!

Yes, press the button and the flaps close .... but press AUTO and they open again.

And default to open on starting.
