Question about Climate Control

I think this is the most appropriate forum for this question...

Most of the time I'm driving the Niro alone, but at times my wife is with me (like on weekneds or evenings). She tends like cold AC blowing hard on her, I HATE that.

I try to get her to set the temp via climate control. Dual temps is easy with the way things are set up, but she wants to turn the fan up high too and it always turns ALL (including my) fans up as well.

Is there a way to turn up fans higher on one side only, not just change temp?

Edit: I don't think it matters as I think they are all the same, but 2018 Niro EX PHEV, if it makes a difference.

No, you can have different temperature settings, but I don't think you can set different fan speeds. Best you can do is set her side to "low" and redirect or close your vents.

Thanks. I was afraid of that. It's a constant battle between us.

The vent controls are quite good (and one of the nicer feeling controls in the car). You should be able to set fan speed to her preference, and close your vents to reduce air flow to your preference.
