Default 2015 GT - Heat radiating from the inside of car

I have a 2015 Mustang GT. Recently I have felt heat radiating from somewhere inside of the car. I turned off the AC and heating unit, and can still feel a heat coming from somewhere while driving. There isn't any heat coming from the vents.

It feels like it's coming from the AC console area, or gearbox. Upon further testing, I found that when I placed my hand down towards the front passenger area floor, just to the right off the center console I can really feel it being warm.

Clearly there is something wrong, however when I take it to a dealership they say they cant find anything. The car is still under warranty so I want to get this fixed before it turns into a bigger issue.

If anyone has experienced this or can give me some tips to diagnose, it would be much appreciated.

Is this something new or has it always done it? To be quite honest, heat coming from that area is sort of normal if you think about it.... Transmissions get pretty warm during normal operation, and exhaust coming off the engine is routed nearby. My '01 does the same thing, always has. Now if you start smelling melting carpet or something then that's a bit excessive, but as you describe the issue I don't see anything particularly alarming.

Thanks for your feedback. I actually don't remember feeling it before. I had a problem with a part of the AC, that I had to take it in for service, and they had to replace the part. So I'm thinking it may be something related to that. I also find it strange that it's only coming from one side.

I know on my old early build 05, Ford didn't use any insulation on the heater core pipes and that would radiate so much heat I had to have the A/C on even in cooler weather. I'm wondering if you had work done to the A/C that required the dash/console or heating system opened in the cabin, if they forgot to reassemble correctly or left some insulating material out. I just bought a 17 GT in Nov but it'll be under tarp till end of March so I won't be able to tell if the hot floor will be the same. These cars make a lot of heat and the tall trans tunnel and lower to ground stance, I think, traps a lot of heat.

megahertz, reminds me of when I went over a hump and pushed the exhaust pipe close to the floorboard. While your checking the insulation thing throw a eye on the clearance that exhaust pipe has from the floorboard.

Thanks for the feedback guys!

@tw1234 I did have some A/C work done. A part broke and they had to replace it. So yea that's what I was thinking.

@Buck_Sergeant thanks for the tip. I'm going to take it into a different dealership and have them look at that.
