    This still doesn't sound like a problem to me. It seems completely normal. I would expect the air temp to have a slight increase.

    If you told us the air temp from the vent was 50F warmer than the outside air (with the heat off), then I would think there's a problem. I'll check mine this weekend.

    It does to me. 3.5C can be the difference between AC on or off. And so it has an impact on the mileage (and AC wear, and ...)

    I agree that it's inevitable that the air will be a bit warmer due to internal friction in the air channels, but 3.5 degree is way to much.

    The bypass is for the cooling fluid.
    The hot cooling fluid does not enter the heater assy with the bypass in place, and so it is cooler inside the cabin.

    It is the charcoal canister. The picture was taken from the right hand side looking horizontally to the left.

    Interesting. I'm pretty sure our design in North America has the vapor absorber located under the fuel tank. That mount located on the firewall is unused here.

    Refer to this thread: Empty Support on Firewall?

    I apologize for the off-topic discussion.
