    Hi guys
    Has anyone got a solution to the heater outlet in the footwell on a fiat Ducato 2002 model ? The outlet only faces the driver as in delivery van. My wife normally has to put a blanket across her knees to keep warm( we live in spain !!) I did look to putting some form of plumbing tube down there but this is a silly situation.
    Hope someone can advise please

    Never was able to solve this problem, did see a van once that the owner had fitted an extra heater matrix that had cured the problem.
    Only way we got over it was to curtain off the van when travelling in cold weather, so you only had a cab, similar to original van to heat. This seemed the most cost effective method for us.

    strange thing is in the vans with the other side driving what did they change???
    if you look at the bottom of the heater unit is the plastic duct ( or whatever it is ) open at the drivers side and not at the passenger?? if so just cut a bit out on the passenger side.
