Air recirculate gear broke off and made a loud clicking noise that would only be dimmed when the recirculate button was engaged. Temporary fix and the noise soon returned, had to unplug the recirculate mechanism. Now it only pulls in 50% outside, 50% recirculated air.
Part that opens and closes the outside fresh air vent was stuck in the recirculate position. Dealer replaced the part under warranty which was just about to expire. Only other problem is the front brakes are starting to squeak a bit. Pads are original ones. Probably time for a change. No other problems to report
