Let us know what you come up with. My seat cushion is compressed and displays the "hard tailbone discomfort" character, so I'm thinking of replacing it. The dealer wants an ungodly sum, so I'm looking for alternatives.

My 02' LS 430 UL had a filter under the front seats. The filter was the size of a cigarette box. I just blew the filters out with compressed air every so often and the air flow was excellent.
My 08' 460 has poor if any air flow. I am going to blow some compressed air into the seats to see if I can "back flush" the air canals.
Who knows.. It's worth a try.

I will do it tomorrow. Did not try it yet. Will post an update.
I drove my wife's Sequoia tonight and what a difference. Air was flowing fast and hard out of her front seats.
