    I've noticed that my cabin fan is not as powerful as it used to be, except when I select reverse, you can then hear it blow properly.

    Anyone come across this or a fix?

    When you're in reverse, the heater goes into re-circulation mode, the flaps to the outside close so the fan sounds faster.

    As above ...so the exhaust fumes aren't sucked into the cabin.

    Yeah so if it sounds normal when on recirc is your pollen filter blocked?

    Maybe the flaps aren't closing.
