Haha!! I was wrong about one controlling the fan that is done by the electrical switch. The top lever controls the lever nearest to the fan, the other on the side closes the entire box. I would make sure both are closed.

I played with it a bit. I still can't figure out what closes, and what openins the vents (when forcing the levers manually on the heater box).

The one on the top controls a flap that forced air through the heater matrix or bypass the matrix. The one on the side closes the entire box from the outside stopping all air flow.

Thanks. Facing the heater box (facing rear of truck ) if I want to stop all air from getting in the cabin (especially hot air) which direction do I force all the levers?

On the top heater control. Cable pushed out (left on LHD) is hot, pulled in is cold.

On the side air flow, pushed out (down) is open, pulled in is closed.

Disconnect the cables and make sure they are being forced tight. There is a clip on the cable sheath that you can pop on and off to adjust this tension.

I've engaged in an all out assault on the heat and smell. 1) dynamat inside ST doors 2) near driver pedals/footwell 3) inside driver seatbox (also found a sizable cable hole in there missing a gasket/cover) 4) inside e brake boot cover 5) and manually closed all vents using levers ON the heater box. Long drive this weekend will report back. Yes I know defenders are supposed to smell. Purists can email directly with complaints!

Dynapad is good stuff, more sound absorption then regular dynamat. And looks better, just a black matte finish.

Dynapad is a half inch thick and is really intended for use under carpet, not under the hood where it can get wet. Dynaliner will hold water as well, not at all what you want to use under the hood on a defender. Or anywhere on a defender for that matter. Im sure it would work great in a civic.

DEI makes some nice stuff, aluminum skin over fiberglass, adhesive backing, all less than 1/4 inch thick. Withstands up to 1700 degrees, the adhesive holds to 450.

I used this.

www.b-quiet.com/hliner.html

Easy to cut and apply - I did other various sound deadening throughout plus new thicker carpet and front rubber mats.

Quieter for sure but not super quiet.

The Hliner appears to keep the hood cooler as well.

I used Hushmat under the bonnet, inside the cab and took the door panels off and lined them. It's not only great sound barrier but these type of mats really "thicken" the wall of the sheet metal. If you tap on my bonnet, it sounds / feels like solid steel. Same for my door panels.
