Re: [DML] Overheating in the fuse/relay compartment



On my car I cut a hole into the wooden cover and attached a cooling  
fan and used the Automatic Computer fuse to power it since I had a 5- 
speed.

On top of the cover I made a 1/4 inch duct work that went along the  
top and had a vent that went up just barely by the back wall and the  
rear carpet just covered it so you couldnt see it. The duct work was  
made out of duct end caps, I bent nothing from what I remembered, not  
sure it has been a while now since I did this mod and I sold the car  
early this year.

You can see photos of it here.

It worked excellent till I laid the cover down on top of something  
that made the fan not spin and burned it out when I was adjusting  
some re-wiring I had to do in the fuse box area.

It was silent and it turned on and off with the ignition switch. It  
was amazing how hot the air was when it was working.
