Default Air flow from rear console vents...

Guys - does the HVAC recall have anything to do with not getting air to flow from the rear console vents?

No matter what blower setting I use, I get almost no flow from them in my crew cab...is this normal or is this symptomatic of the HVAC recall?

Thanks in advance!

Great question...I have noticed the exact same thing. Can't wait for answers.

I noticed the same thing on my Crew Cab. I have not gone back to the dealer for the recall yet. Hopefully someone has the answer.

Ok, I'm glad to see I'm not going crazy here. Yeah, I mean I'll get just a hint of something, but increasing the fan speed does nothing to increase flow back there. Maybe it's just the design?

My 6 year old brought it to my attention.

most of the rear airflow seems to come from the vents under the seats, almost nothing from the console. Why on earth is there no fan switch back there?

Mine have very little airflow through them also. Took it in for the recall & they said all is good. They just re flashed the computer & checked the actuators. It seems to be the norm for the rear vents.

Same for my crew cab, airflow from under seat vents OK & almost nothing from the console. Was planning on bringing it up the next time I get to the dealer.

I'm pretty sure it's normal. It's the same in my truck too. And it was like that in my 07 Explorer also. I'm not too worried about it as long as it blows strong when I'm sitting in the drivers seat.
