    On Saturday, October 5th, I had been to Vecto motors and bought the boot/covering for the handbrake from the linea part stable.
    It cost me just 235 Rs and that completes this upgrade.
    Yesterday I had to pick my relatives from the bus stand. They were obviously tired after their long bus journey.
    But by the time we reached my house, they were completely refreshed.
    A well-worth mod!

    A Big Thanks to Puntom !!! , finally installed the linea armrest for my punto sport with rear A/C functional.

    Completely satisfied with the upgrade:D


    Linea flap unit (HVAC unit) cost around Rs. 26,000 and it involves removal of the dashboard console completely, which will be tedious and expensive job.

    So the cheap & best way to make the rear a/c functional is to custom make like PUNTOM suggested!!!

    Thanks a lot once Again.

    I've armrest installed and front duct ready which i bought two years ago. I didn't installed it because of any possible leakage. Do you face any sort of leakage in you setup? If not, I'll show but rear duct and get it installed.

    What Pictures? Armrest or the handbrake boot?

    26000!!! Did you install the Linea HVAC unit! :eek:

    I have absolutely no issues with air leakage till date.
    The key is to use a smaller CV boot so that it fits tightly.
    Added to that, since I have those cable ties, I don't have any leakage issues

    No, I did in the similar way you have done.
    But i made an RPT tube of 6 inches instead of rubber hose.
