    I haven't tried it, putting some masking tape over the inlet at the bottom of the windscreen might prove my theory.
    Cheers

    looking at Nissan fast at what's connected where, schematics may help you out seeing what goes/connects where etc.
    IF IT'S NOT A NISSAN.
    THEN IT'S A COMPROMISE

    Thanks again guys. All is working like it should. Flap opens and closes like it should. As for the noise it was a plastic bag .that had sux up into the fan area. Will be looking for a mod for fresh air vent

    Has anyone tried macca's theory out with the tape? It's an interesting one. Will try it myself if not.

    I remember a brother having an XC Falcon, which had vents near the feet on the passenger and drivers side, that had a black handle that you pulled towards the seats and what a difference it made, by letting the cool air in.

    Same thing on my old VC Valiant. A vent system that really worked. No room to run that big duct up to the grill with modern vehicles.

    @Brissieboy I don`t mind the old Valiants and tis a shame they still don`t have that option these days.
