I have a Wagon R LXI model.Is it natural when a/c is put on, the bonnet and the front tyres gets heated up. It is not too hot u can put your hand on it when the heat is. Kindly please clear my doubt.

Expert`s comment:

We can not conclude overheating of engine due to AC etc by only considering heating of Bonnet. Bonnet heating can also be due to poor insulation provided and SUN.

I dont think this is normal. In case of doubt go to a Masruti factory workshop for clarification

I don't think putting on A/C creates bonnet heating or heating up of tyres. This has nothing to do with either of them. The reason may be some thing else. Either constantly putting your leg on the break pedal may be one of the reasons. Please check that one. 2nd. one heating of bonnet. As such after a while the bonnet gets heated up. The fan throws hot air out. Some goes out and hot air as you know becomes light and goes up and the only area where it hits is the bonnet.
