    Pardon my negativity but this is typical of dealers - they replace everything possible and hope they solve the issue somehow. No problem...the client pays....

    How does door panel trims and carpet hooks address dust ingress? Are you paying or is this under a warranty?
    If it was my money, I'd ask the service manager to take me through the process of what they are going to do.
    It sounds like the dust problem is big, so I understand your willingness to pay good money to solve it. I'm sure I would too, so I'm definitely not criticising you.

    But a blower for about R500. Makes getting rid of dust and sand in the vehicle so easy. Also great for cleaning most of the dust off a camping trailer when you stop for the night.

    Good day everyoneMy solution for the huge dust problem on my 2016 D/C Gd6. Two ventilation holes behind the back seat. Remove back seats. Clean everything. Ducktape both holes completely. No more dust.Drive dirt roads every day. Will try to upload photos.

    So those look like the pressure relief vents for when closing the doors. The Fortuner also has one of them on the rear left right hand side. I must actually check mine out on the Fortuner and possibly also do this

    Sho, that is some serious dust. How could Toyota miss that when testing the vehicle.

    I would be livid.

    Hi
    I had a 2016 HiLux 4x4 with dust entry problems purchased new from McCarthy in Pinetown.
    This I think was one of the first batches of the GD6 mine was the 2,8 GD 4x4 Auto
    This vehicle has many come backs one of them being dust ingression. After complaining bitterly for 20000km Toyota brought out a modification / and acknowledged a dust problem. The "dust kit" was duly ordered from Toyota SA with the factory rep being involved. I was given a loan vehicle and they kept the vehicle for 6 working days.
    Everything and I mean every thing was stripped out of the cab, seats, door panels, hood lining, carpets and dashboard. The kit was installed.
    Unfortunately that vehicle was never the same, but no dust ingression from then on out but plenty of other problems.
    After the 40k service and all the hassles was done I drove the vehicle out of the workshop to their used AutoMark section and managed to sell it back to then. Took the hiding but had peace of mind

    So I hope you get properly sorted out
    Good luck

    Would that be on "recirculate" or "fresh"?

    Peter, every loadbin will have dust. Every brand of bakkie as well. The reality is that the loadbin don't have a roof over it and will not be dust or waterproof. If you want it sealed you will have to do it yourself.

    So this comment is still an interesting one. I for one on previous vehicles always had the fan speed on high and recirc on and dont recall dust issues (Nissan Xtrail T32 and a Ford Ecosport). Majority consensus both locally and abroad (Aus Mostly) is to have it on fresh air in on a high fan speed but some still say the other way round. I haven't had my Fortuna long enough to test but when I bought the vehicle there most definitely was evidence of dust ingress at the aircon vents and boot area.

    As Battlestar pointed out, there is no certainty of opinion. I'm not going to ask you to pick a side, but rather appeal to your logic.
    Thanks to the OP, we have a nice set if images showing how the dust accumulated around, and because of, those open vents.
    Logic suggests that the only way to avoid dust getting in there, is to have a higher (positive) air pressure inside the cockpit. If you close the inlet vents by selecting "recirculation", then there is no reasonable way of building positive air pressure inside the cockpit. Even setting the fan speed to full will not be able to build pressure.
    Conversely, if you open the inlet vents and assist by turning the fan speed up a little, then you have a build up of pressure and all the excess fresh air rushing into the cockpit must exit via those dusty little vents behind the back seat. Then the dust can't go (upstream) into the cockpit.
    If you crack a window, then Bernoulli's principle applies and air rushes out enabling the vents behind the seats to suck in dust.
    Every car make/model will have a different design for those exit vents, which means some will be more prone than others to suck in dust, but the principle is the same.
    Sealing those exit vents will definitely inhibit the inflow of fresh air because air pressure will build inside the cockpit. I suppose cracking a rear window open will help under those conditions.
