    I assume when the HVAC is in fresh-air mode there is some accommodation in the body to allow the air to exit. If so, does anyone know where that is? I expected to find it around the rear window somewhere but apparently not.

    Thanks,
    Alan

    If you remove the covers over the seat belt mouse motors, you will find a ~1" hole there. It traces to the engine bay.

    But there needs to be more to vent the car when you close the doors.

    Thanks very much! Found it. Sure looks like an afterthought.

    Hey Alan - seeing you're in the Bay. Were you by chance driving on Highway near Half Moon Bay yesterday? Spotted a red 512TR buzzing me on the bicycle.

    I wish, but I did test up on Skyline where I live. Mine’s black.
