Sweaty seats

Post by Essbee » Thu Jul 20, 2017 4:07 pm

Can anyone help/offer advice.
The seats in our Bongo make you very sweaty when driving - especially in the recent hot weather! I have never noticed this problem driving any other vehicle though.
Has anyone else had this issue? Or alternatively cn anyone suggest how to combat it? (Yes, we shower regularly and open the windows in the van...)

Thank you in advance :)

Get some of those terrible beaded seat covers and turn AC on or open a window and strip off.

The seat covering will depend on what you bought! Whilst material seat coverings are common there were other options depending on year and what was ordered by the original buyer in Japan. You will need to provide photo's or an explanation of what the seat material is.

Just one post 4 1/2 years ago so I don’t think this is going anywhere. :wink:

100pct cotton underwear. Engine is under the seat so yes it does get rather warm.. great in winter not
so nice in summer. Aircon is the way to go.

Oh yeah a bit old now #-o
