Problem with heating vent blows cold air on passenger side and warm (not hot) air on driver side

Any thoughts much appreciated

You mentioned heating but I encountered the exact same problem with my 2014 Carens/Rondo (Canadian model) when the air conditioning coolant leaked out. For a little while at least. If you are actually trying to get heat instead of cooling could it be that you are low on radiator fluid? Sorry, that's a wild guess that will probably get the real mechanics here snickering...

No sniggering, but would like to hear an explanation of your theory, and also how A/C coolant gas leaking out comes into play.

I didn't think it through before. I don't clearly remember the explanation the A/C mechanic gave me for the odd A/C operation but it involved the compressor and/or condensor, which aren't involved in heating. Sorry about that.
