Thank you for the videos Rick!! So its interesting to see the air exits on the bottom left but seems to just blow inside the plastic in the latch area. I'm also wondering if the air exits from the rubber flaps that Max is talking about though I have not seen that yet. Maybe I need to roll up the windows and blast the fan inside so see if it compresses the air in the car and caused some to leak out. Will try that now...
BINGO -- THAT'S IT!!! When the air is blowing if you close all the windows (they have to be up) then the air will blow out the vents with the rubber flaps on the left and right side. Select recirculate on the fan and no more air blows out. Open a window and no air blows out. With the car closed up you can also keep air leaking out the door handles.
This is very valuable information which we can use to keep the battery cool in hot weather. AC and NO recirculate is the best option.
Rick, if possible I need one more test. Windows up, vent on (doesn't have to be AC, with no recirculate. Smoke machine on inside the car, does the smoke exit out the left and right flaps that are up inside the bumper area? I think you need a remote trigger for the smoke machine, maybe you can run a wire with a push button to the outside of the car under the door (close the door on the wire) so you can keep the windows shut to compress the car.
