Yes,,you need to remove the centre console that covers the handbrake right up to where it meets the dash,,you need to remove that whole unit (a couple of 8 mil nuts hold that in pop off the little tiny gromets to view them)this will give you room to manover the carpet back enough to retrieve the phone out of the vent..you might need to remove the seat (youl no when u look)cause that vent runs right under,,,the seat,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

The passenger seat is hot on our 2008 Chevy equinox. We do not have seat Warner's.


Was it in the DIRECT SUN?

Maybe you do have Heated Seats... Nothing is going to warm it up unless your VENT under the seat is blowing Directly there

My phone fell behind the driver seat of my friends mazereti and landed in the air vent under the driver seat. Anyone got any ideas how to gain access to get it out or remove vent. Thanks for the help


Buy a grab hook at a parts store or a telescoping magnet for 5 bucks and use it to grab the cell phone out of there so you don't have to remove anything. Auto zone has a strong telescoping magnet that would pull it out with.

No, like others said, there's an access plate under the rear seats. Most imports (Honda, Toyota, Nissan) have this access plate to get to the pump. Some domestics don't (90's Camaros etc)

Rear window defroster, no driver heated seat


check the ground on the passenger side of the rear window under the trim panel. That is what was wrong with mine.

There are seperate blowers for the front and rear air. It is most likely either your blower motor or the resistor, both located under the passenger side dash. I got a blower from a salvage yard for $25, But ended up having to get the resister from the dealership for about $130. Hope this helps.

A/c works on passenger side not ondriver side


Do you have automatic climate control? Don't know if this is the same as my Caddy but, I had this problem on my car - there's a rod assembly that opens and closes the vents in the car for the automatic climate control. It's supposed to open all vents to the AC feed when in AC mode. BUT, if it slips loose, the default status is to feed heat through (you can open a window in the summer, but you don't want AC blowing in your face and on your windshield in the winter).

In my case, the driver's side was working right, pumping cold air, but the passenger side was actually dumping hot air into the car. Don't know exactly where, but the young friend who keeps my car running smoothly told me he just had to drop the glove box etc. on the passenger side to get to the rod and slipped it back into place. I'm not agile enough, but if you are, you can probably crawl around under there and figure it out - or get a friendly mechanically inclined young friend to do it for you.

Hope that this will fix it for you - did for me.
