    It shouldn't be any harder to get at than the other box. The driver seat is pretty easy to remove if needed.

    Well, I can tell you that our '00 LTC stretched by Krystal does not blow super hard but it does have 3 speeds and if left to warm up, it does get warm in the back even in these Chicago winters. It is not as good as the front, but we have never had a complaint. One more thing to check is to make sure the duct hoses are connected properly (our Chrysler had one duct spliced in half for some reason and taped back together, after awhile the tape failed - we have since fixed it right). One thing that still bothers me is that you say that is basically has "one speed". Do you only have one speed? Is your blower bad?

    You can contact MastrAir @ 866-684-7100. They are located in Elkhart, IN and are MTG's manufacturer of their H/AC parts (see http://www.mtgparts.com/mm5/merchant...gory_Code=MAST). I would let your car run for 30 minutes and put a thermometer (one of those long stemmed ones you can buy at the auto parts store) in the duct where the air comes OUT at the back so that when you call you can tell them what temp it is blowing at (and record the outside temp also). Sometimes it is hard to diagnose without really being there, but this should get you on the right track. MastrAir's people are really helpful and nice. Good Luck and if you have any other questions feel free to ask!

    ya i do get heat back there just not alot of it, and when only blowing through some vents it gets cooler in certain spots, it will frost up,windows with ice on them . that seems to cool for me. i do have more than one speed ,my apology,my medium is almost faster than high though. its just frustrating. we need heat . does your car frost up on inside when full ,maybe i should blow this car out and my new lol . do yours only blow through a few vents ,seems like krystals standard. i thought if had the blower power to hook all vents together for even heat

    The rear windows frost up on all limousines, something we all have to deal with.

    Yes, both of our stretches frost up the windows in the back. This is because there is moisture in the heated air. When you turn your defrost cycle on in the front, it actually turns on the A/C compressor. This sucks the moisture out of the blowing air. Also, most stretches do not have any vents blowing on the glass. If it is not directly blowing on the glass it probably will not defrost the glass (most newer cars even have a little angled vent on the sides of the dashboard blowing directly on the side windows when the defrost cycle is on). You have some good ideas - I would contact MastrAir to see if they have any suggestions.
