My question is on the fresh air vents, it seems at times that they don't open to let the fresh air in automatically when the outside temps is above 40 degrees F, is there a minimumum outside temp that it needs to be at so the fresh air vents to operate normally without the A/C needing to be on? Otherwise it keeps getting hotter and hotter in the car and climate control set at 68 degrees F and the inside of the car could reach 80, any thoughts? are they sticking shut? Because when they do open I hear a flop as if the rubber flaps having trouble dissengaging from the vent walls, does that make sense? Anyone knows if this can be reached from the engine bay? when I turn the A/C on then everything works fine! but should I have to keep the A/C engaged and the compressor running even if the outside temps are at 40?
