I have a 2006 159 3.2 , and recently have noticed that there is no airflow from the Passenger side air vents. The drivers side and rear air vents are all fine , it's just the passenger side that has no airflow, The passenger side air vent to clear the front windscreen does seem to have air flow, but no airflow from the passenger side central vents , or from the footwell vents.
I assume that their is some sort of mechanical linkage which controls the opening and closing of the vents.
Has anyone had this issue before ? I did take off the piece of carpet below the passenger footwell , but can't see much , if anyone has had this problem ,can they give me some pointers as to how much I have to dismantle to try to fix ? Do I have to dismantle the glove compartment?
What is the likeliehood that a new part will be needed.
If this is a 'garage fix' any idea on how long a job would take? . I have no main dealers close to me (I'm in Aberdeen , so my nearest dealer is in Inverness or Perth, or a Alfa Iny specialist in Dundee) . Is this a job that a garage not used to Alfa's will be able to sort?
Any help would be greatly appreciated
