Bulkhead Vents

Recommended Posts

Hi all

I am a new owner of a 2017 TC swb. I really like the van so far but I am going to try and lessen the noise from the back into the cab by putting some sound insulation foam and deadener on either side of the bulkhead.

 

My question is, what's the purpose of the vents in the bulkhead and are they really needed for a work van?

 

Obviously my soundproofing would be greatly improved if I could cover them! 

 

Any help would be much appreciated 

 

Nick

Dont' have a bulkhead so no clue what vents you are talking about.  Never seen a tc with a bulkhead other than adverts for such thing.

I have read that there are 2 vents in the rear pillars that allow air out under the rear bumper.

This allows fresh air to come in through the cowl(unless you have the recirculate button pushed).

They also allow you to slam your doors and not pop your ear drums.

I imagine the bulkhead vents equalize pressure between the front and back

Yes. The bulkheads are needed for air flow and pressure equalization. You really notice the pressure when you close a lift gate.
