    Hi, I feel that my Tacoma has bad air inside, like there is no ventilation and the windows may fog up more than I am used to.
    I think that the bad air has nothing to with my personal hygiene :cool: but seriously I am wondering if this has something to do with a fault in the recycle air button, a vent somewhere might be closed or a filter full of dust or something.
    I thing there is a filter somewhere in the heater. If this filter is full of dust what will happen?
    When pushing the recycle air button should there be a change of sound from the heater?
    Any ideas well appreciated.

    if you hit the recycle air button the heater should increase the air being pushed. so it should blow a little harder than with it off

    Yebb and the fog goes away fast, but I have this feeling that there is no ventilation.

    The air in Iceland is not damp it is more like dry and on a regular day the front window sometimes starts to fog and I have to turn up the heater. The heater should be able to keep the window fog free on a low or median setting, wright?

    not to many, love it the way it is
    my front window fogs with the recirc on, especially when it is damp outside. I either switch the recirc off or cut on the defrost

    you might want to change your cabin filter also, it is located behind your glovebox. there are many threads here at the forum regarding cabin air filters and the subsequent changing of them

    Thanks, I now think that the heater is stuck on recycle air, I will have to look at this further, and the cabin air filter.
    There is no Hijacking dalsmthme and thanks. I think it is for the most parts the same mod’s that you guys are doing. Our aim is to drive off-road on snow
