Default a/c vent strength

do anyone else's outer hvac vents (the ones by the doors) blow weaker than the center ones above the radio? I'm not sure if its normal or if the blower for mine sucked something up and its blocked in there, lol. thanks

Mine blow out pretty good flow of air.

They pop right off so you can see if something is in there.

I've always found them to be "noticeably less" however not so much so that I think something is wrong.

x2. the center one is closer to the blower, and the outer two have a longer way to travel. i normally keep the passenger side closed, along with the right one in the radio bezel.

Mine are weaker then the center vents, but still blow plenty of air. Like STL, said, those vent caps just pop off easy enough.

hmm, they do put out air, I guess it is a fair amount, just less than the center ones. I usually keep the passenger one closed too, but I can't close either of the center ones... maybe only newer ones have that capability? haha. it probably is just inherent to the design, but I'll go have a look anyways.
thanks

The center vents on my '03 don't close either. I usually keep the side ones pointed at the side windows during the winter anyway.
