    Default Constant air comming through vents

    Hey guys,

    Ive had this with the car since ive had it so not really thought about it much before but when the car is moving there is constantly air comming through the vents even when the blowers are off but when i stop the air flow stops.If i push the recircualtion button it stops.

    Im assuming theres some sort of flap that stuck open?

    Wasnt much of a problem during the summer but now when i get into the car in the mornings its freezing and damp as theres nothing stopping the cold air entering the car

    How can i sort it out?

    Thanks

    Keep your ventilation at 1 and with the heating turned up you won't feel the cold. You should always have the ventilation on tbh as it allows fresh air into the car. I don't think its a fault, there will always be some air coming in unless you the recirc button on the shut the flap from the outside but then the windows will steam up

    It doesnt bother me when im driving,its the fact that when its cold and frosty outside theres nothing stopping the damp cold air entering the car when it parked.

    Remember the air will have to go through the pollen filter , so unless it has positive air pressure outside ie from driving along then not much air will move so as others have said best to have some airflow than stale air in the car.
