pulsar Tenka rear passenger heaters

Post by jerrybear » Mon Nov 05, 2018 10:56 pm

i previously had a pulsar N-connector,it was fitted with a dual control for the rear passenger heater,and a control box inbetween the rear seats for the passengers to adjust etc,i have now gone for a pulsar Tenka,but even though it has a dual switch on the heater control panel upfront there is no heater box situated in the rear for the passengers.What i would like to know is how does the hot or cold air now get to the passengers

The rear passenger vents were available in the early models, but soon disapeared. My guess is they didnt renew the parts bin for those elements when they ran out to keep costs down due to lower than expeced demand.

If there are no rear vents, then HVAC will only be available via the front vents in the dash!

The dual switch is to control driver/front passenger heating control rather than front/rear.

I suspect SplanK may be right about why they disappeared. If they had decided they were discontinuing the Pulsar it wouldn't make financial sense to carry on manufacturing bits they might not need. As long as the spec of the car was changed to remove reference to the rear vents there's not a lot anybody can do.
