9.10 - Recirculation Flap ( )

The re-circ. flap is driven by the push rod actuator. One is on left-hand side of left blower, right hand is on right hand side of right blower.

Actuator is small tin like object with push rod that extends up about 8-10 inches to push on flap arm.

Solenoid on center console (next to the "spare" one) drives both together. My pipe is pale blue. Suck opens flap. Small filter like thing in vacuum line is delay unit (read small hole).

If you get connection to solenoid wrong it will get stuck.

Solenoid either connects actuator line to vacuum or vents. If you reverse connections, vacuum in flap line won't release. And you'll also vent the vacuum supply (hisssss....)

Also realise that delay unit slow things down. Takes 30 seconds for it to move.
