AC vents not working in the back???

One of the guys I work with has a Charger as well and although I have not had this problem I recall something on here about a similar situation. He has had a problem with AC vent in the back not blowing cold. So he went to a dealership in Orlando and they gave him some story about how it wasn't an AC vent but some kind of air return. Long story short, his wife called the dealership this morning (their car is still there getting other things done to it) and they said something about a possible TSB coming out for this as there have been a lot of documented problems with this system. Does anyone know anything about this (is there already one out or heard of one coming out) so I can relay him the additional info?

I believe the rear one's only work if you have dual climate control.

I am probably wrong though.

I'm not sure about the A/C not working back there (I've never checked), but I know the flow of air coming out is not very strong at all. I noticed that when I first got the car.

In order for you to feel anything out of the rear vents, you need to have the fan on high. I think I read that in my owners manual. Otherwise, the fan cannot push the air that far on low. They should work with all climate controls, automatic or manual. MIne work with the fan on high, though its not that much air. Its just enough to say it works though and does help.

Its an air conditioning vent that doesn't work well. I figure since the plastic duck sets over the trany hump it takes a while for the air to get cooled down due to the retained heat on the long uninsulated duck work. If it is on for 15 min or so it starts getting cold. I thought it was a crappy design and was thinking of wrapping the duck with insulation myself but now there might be a TSP I'll wait.

The rear vents are not directly linked to a blower motor. The air suply tube goes under the seats for the floor vent and the ones in the back of the center console, the ones usually claimed as not working have a design flaw. The air comes into the cavity in the console, then has to go up towards the vents. If there was a fan mounted inside the console to move the air, those vents would be more efficient.

I read this too. The back vents are not supposed to function in "Auto" unless the fan is set to "high". I don't know about in the other modes, though.
