Angry 2019 LX Rear Air Vents

How do I get air to flow from the rear air vents? I know the manual says it is reduced but I am getting nothing.

Thanks

What is your A/C vent control set to? There is a vent shut off control on or next to the vent. My 2018 EX has a thumbwheel that can close the vent next to each vent register.

If like the Sorento, it only blows in the rear if the system is blowing through the upper vents (the ones that would blow A/C on your face). If blowing to the floor (like you would for heat), the rear vents don’t get any flow.

Or, the vent is physically closed off as the earlier poster mentioned.

Air vent open control set properly. Still no air to the back vents

I will add this to the list when I return this is this week for other fixes. Not very impressed with initial quality so far.
