Hold your breath and stop breathing.

Thats a good question us Arizona Guys realy do not have this problem much. What do people do there when it's cold and the heter is not working?

Electric heater? Oil heater?

They have hand held defrost heaters at walley world that plug in to the cig lighter for 20.00 or forty bucks but I am not that far on my baja yet to have played with that idea yet. I want to try to hard mount one in for defrost. I an new to AzBaja and would like to thank you guys for the cool info. shifty

I just remembered, Rain-X No Fog works but your window will be a little blurry and you have to re-apply it occasionally.

I took two from either autozone or walmart that plug into the cigarette lighter and just hard wired them to a switch and mounted them to the far left and right of the dash. worked great. I planned on installing seat warmers but now its not street driven so I dont worry about it.

Hmmmm I had a friend that ran a VW gas burning heater (Eberspächer gas-electric heater?) in his Baja,that was in Roseburg Ore..And there is a few companies still currently making both air and liquide heaters that run on fuel (Kerosene,Gas,and Diesel versions) from vehical tanks.
I'm trying to find the link I saved...But to no avail.
I think Military Vehicals Monthly may have an ad for such heaters...?
I myself have very little heat coming from my window vents,but from behind the seat plenty.(And no not from me :P)Even after adding a fan to push the air thru heater channels (I plan on running a plumbers snake thru them someday).
Here's a couple links for aftermarket heaters.
www.espar.com/htm/Spec...LCspec.htm
www.webasto-thermo.com...s_826.html
[url]http://manuals.type4.org/ba4/[url]

Even though I'd rather get my stock heater working again,I know using J-Pipes and Headers take away that choice.But the worries I have with fuel burning heaters is Carbon Monoxide poisoning.Oh and the gas tank too.
And another thoght a friend had,and I've seen this advertised as a kit too.
Using engine oil via an oil cooler to warm the interior,but snaking the lines for a defroster would be a nightmare.
Well that's my 2cents,hopefully help ya'll fall asleep.
Have a great holidays.
