Description and Operation


The system uses a FAN under the seat to help remove the moisture and warmth from occupants and surface of the seats.

It pulls in cabin air though the blower installed under the seat cushion, and supplies the air into the seat cushion and the seat back through the duct.


1. Make sure not to spill liquid on the seat when equipping with ventilation system seats.

2. Because the ventilation system does not move great amounts of air, it is difficult to feel the air coming though the seat cover.
