The manual says when using the rear heat/air, not to block the vent near the floor in the third row of seats, or it will overheat the blower motor. Can I leave the seats down? or will it block the little vent. I can't see chit with the third row up, but I like the extra fast warm up inside in the mornings.

What say y'all?

I had my seats removed for a while, but when they were in I always used that rear air with the seats down, and never had a problem....but maybe I WAS damaging the motor? I haven't had a problem yet, but to be safe, maybe follow the manual?
Anyone else??

Same here, I always run the rear HVAC with the seats down, no problems yet.

Good question, but I think they mean not to stuff "things" in front of the vents, like jackets, sweatshirts, towels......you know...."stuff".I dont think they would design a third row with that kind of restriction in mind. Better to be safe than sorry! -43:D

Rear Blower Motor

I am sure if you put the blower in the side vent only position it should be fine. That way the floor blower is not open.

IF you think about it all your doing by switching the vents to upper only is closing a damper. That would be equal to blocking the vent. I don't see why it would be a problem either way, but I guess they put things in the manual for a reason. I never read it so I have always kept my seat down for hauling the dogs or hunting equipment. I don't guess I have the blower back there on high anyway and most of the time it is off.
