Ventilation

Was wondering what other OH owners are doing (if anything) to get some ventilation air flow in the cabin when not moving? It gets brutal at the lights when 44deg and slow moving without any airflow.So far I've just sucked it up as part of the experience but recently velcroed this little fan under the dash..the air helps a lot but it's really annoying with the pitch of the sound - supposed to be quiet...interested to know what others do?

Iโ€™ve got a couple of these solar fans hanging inside the rear doors, they just sit there and you can remove them just as quick. As you can imagine Cairns NTH Qld can get rather tropical in stop start city traffic, and when you turn the car off the fan still circle the air inside the car,
I to am looking for a silent fan for the front, and to would be interested in seeing what other members are doing
But as my wife says โ€œjust spend ya money and re hook up the air conโ€ ya tight assโ€ ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ

Air cond...I'm in the same position with my WB..first I've got to tackle the vacuum pods on the heater box to get air to face...then get cold A/C but it's a lot of effort and cost ..so keep delaying..in the day I spent a small fortune on keeping GM A6 compressors and Hz/WB air conditioners cold...the issue I've got is with the HR that has nothing other than the foot vent..both windows down is fine when moving...but sitting at lights for several minutes you can literally go into thermal melt down...just a bit of air flow to the face makes a big difference...you can at least get that with HQ onwards..but not on any model before? unless you have under dash A/C which was quite rare to my knowledge

Yea Andrew Iโ€™m hearing you
I had the HR Ute those quarter windows are great lol
In the end I put a dash fan in on top of the console was great But it was in a Ute
The first pic is the type of fan I had, the second pic is something to look at, as it can easily be removed and put into the glovebox ๐Ÿค”

Maybe an under dash air con is the way to go in the sedan ๐Ÿค”

I have used this type of cooler in the past
Fill it with ice and water and turn on the fan

I Have 5 airconditioners installed in my wagon- 4 are the windows on each door, and 1 is the electric tailgate window . I had one of those fans, which I mounted to an old slide-in ashtray, which used to go in about this time of year. All they seem to do is direct 50 degree air straight to your face. Bewdy!

Otherwise I am not interested. Amen."
