Back climate air vents 2019 MKC

There's no air coming out of the vents in the back. Is there a way to test it?

Try turning off Auto climate control. Set the system manually to use the vents. You should have flow at this point.

Auto mode will turn them off and on as it see fits to maintain the total cabin climate.

Also...I believe you need to have it off the floor as well...middle level (floor,MIDDLE, defrost).

I turned the fan speed up to max and set the bottom exhaust manually. Still no air flow out of the back vents.

Yes I pressed htat button and raise the fan speed to max. No air out of back vents. Any suggestions?

obviously you must have checked they are opened, having said that I would take it to the dealer to see what they make of it. Or perhaps ask a friend if they can look to confirm your not crazy..

Sorry to weigh in here, but looking at this exchange of messages I can't tell if you actually set it to floor or vent (which is what you probably want)?

So I checked again. Vents are and were open. But this time I set the top body on(man's head) and it seemed to give air. In Auto, I didn't seem to get much. Neither were there much air with the bottom of the man only selected. It seems to have a mind of its own. But at least I did get some air moving so the vents have to be hooked up. Why the air amount varies and when, I can't figure out.
