dash vents can't be shut off

Recommended Posts

This could well have been posted before. But just quickly, if anyone knows this. My dash vents (two on the corners and two the middles) don't seem to shut off when I deactivate the "vent" icon on the air con control console.

Windscreen vents and under console vents are working as they should.

So, are there 3 or 4 separate motors governing the shutting/opening of the dash vents, or is it one big motor/valve somewhere?

I am thinking, if it's 3 or 4 separate ones, they can't have all failed. So the problem is with the controller or something else. If it's one big motor, maybe that's the problem.

If my dash has been blowing out foam, could this cause this problem of the vents not being able to shut off? I have read posts regarding replacing the foam. But I am not sure what the exact symptoms of blowing foam are, other than, the blown foam.

"My dash vents (two on the corners and two the middles) don't seem to shut off when I deactivate the "vent" icon on the air con control console."

If the vent icon and the up and down icons are off air will still come through. Try turning off the center icon and turn on only the up windsheild icon and see if air is still coming through?
