    When the front row is comfortable, it's too hot for my son to sit in the back row. If the air conditioner is turned on again, the front row will be too cold. Do you have any friends who have changed if you want to add air outlets to the back row?

    Never mind, I’ll google translate it.


    “When the front seats are comfortable, my son in the rear is too hot. If I turn on the A/C, then the front seats are too cold. Has anyone added rear A/C vents?”

    You used traditional Chinese (more common in Taiwan). OP used simplified, but im sure it could be deciphered.

    Sadly I don't know the answer. Can only suggest "S-flow" be turned off (if it's on) and perhaps point the center vents towards the rear of the car.

    Tinting windows may help as well

    Every car I've ever been in is like that, except for the big luxury SUVs with separate systems in the back. I can't think of any better advice than what @Tha_Ape said.

    I have tinted glass, but my son is afraid of heat and sweats easily. It seems that I need to modify it to add a rear air outlet.

    Until you’ve modified it, can you close the side vents and blow the cold air through the centre vents to the rear? (Increase the fan speed so it gets to the rear, and hopefully the front isn’t as cold because you’ve closed the side vents).

    also make sure S-Flow is turned off
