    It's a kit the dealer provides, mine was around £50 if I remember correctly. Get the optional tray too otherwise your glovebox will develop mildew.

    This will help.Its to do a b8 though, but will give you an idea.
    AudiEnthusiasts Glove Box Cooler

    Dont forget that it can heat the box as well as its dependant on your temperature setting for the whole car. Personally i wish that it was available for the b8, as well as having a cooling vent in the boot area both individually controlled. A bit irrelevant in any case as audi has poor aircon...just not cold enough

    I have been looking on EKTA, looks like you may have to fit an additional pipe to feed the refrigerated glove box, but it looked simple enough, once the gove box is removed.
    Anybody got any prices yet?

    +1

    You need 2 parts - a pipe (which fits in place of a bung into the side of the aircon) and a vent (that fits in the back of the glovebox and allows you to turn off the cold air in the Winter).

    Hi,

    If you want to cool the whole glove box then this is what you need:

    Home Page > ECS News > Audi B6/B7 Refrigerated Glove Box Kit

    Or if you want the box and pipe, i believe you need this:

    AC2.jpg

    and this

    AC3.jpg

    But pls dont quote me on this, as I think these are US pics/part numbers !!

    extremely simple. It takes the air feed after the air conditioning matrix but before the heater matrix.

    The take off to the cool box is after the air con matrix but before the heater matrix, so it's always cold.

    Well I ordered the parts to do the Glovebox chiller/cooler today from my local Audi main stealer.
    Ordered,
    Air Hose - Pt. No. 8E2816311 - £6.08
    Outlet - Pt. No. 8E08207014PK - £16.26
    Light - Pt. No. 8E0947415 - £7.36
    Cool Box - Pt. No. 8E2862807A6PS - £76.87
    These prices are discounted 10%, and will need VAT applied to them.
    The cool box itself is on back order, and will need to come from Germany (7-10 days delivery).
    Thanks to PetrolDave regarding the tip on the relocation of the Glove Box light.
    Though exactly where in the Glove Box it is relocated too I,m not to sure yet, will have to wait till I have fitted the cool box to see exactly.

    The existing light is covered by the Cool Box insert, so I removed it (it's now the boot light in my Citroen C1!). The replacement I fitted on the RHS of the glovebox just in front of the Cool Box insert - the existing wires have the correct connector and are long enough to reach.

    Hi,
    Well I have just picked up all the bits to do the chilled glove box mod from my local dealer, the replacement glove box light, and insulated box were both on back order from Germany, ordered last Saturday they arrived yesterday, not bad I thought.



    Will fit it in the next couple of weeks or so, as well as puddle and security lights, footwell lighting, and Cruise Control, and few other little repairs I need to carry out
