X3 - No Heat in Backseat

I have a 2016 X3.

The heat doesn't work in the backseat. My vents only blow cold air. I took it to the dealership, and they told me that "there is no heat in the backseat in X3s". They are only vets that blow cold air. "The heat only comes from the floor" is what they told me.

Is this true? Does anybody else's X3s blow heat from the vents in the console in the backseat?

Thanks,
Flower

Go to another dealer. There is rear heat via vent and optional heated rear seats

Clueless dealer. Of course there is heat in the back seat. Ejw2011 is exactly correct.

I've never rode in the back seat of my X3, let alone in the winter. But no one has complained about no heat.

This is normal. The heat to the rear comes out of vents under the front seats.

On ours there are two vents behind the front seat central armrest. There is also a wheel to adjust temperature and two seat heating buttons. You should check your instruction manual which explains these things.

Think of the vents on back of the center console as a duplicate of the vents in the center of the dash. The 0-1 dial turns the vents off and on. The blue to red dial adjusts the relative coolness/warmth of the air that is directed out of the dash vents by the climate control. Usually this is fresh air or air conditioning. The heat up front comes out under the dash by your feet. If you really have the heat blasting some warm air will come out of the dash vents but never as warm as the under dash air. The main source of heat for the rear seats comes out of vents under each front seat.
