I noticed that I'm getting some blow through even when the fan is turned to "off" position. Is this normal? Switching the mode (upward fans only, upper and lower) and changing the heat settings it follows how it blows out.

The interior fan runs whenever the ignition is on IGII. The fan switch "Off" position is a fib, the fan jruns at a very slow speed, but it still runs. When the E is moving you''ll get some additional airflow from the air compressed at the bottom of the windshield into the intake vent. Open a window or skylight and drag will suck more air through the vents into the cabin.

Thanks again. That certainly explains it, because I first noticed it as I was driving with the window partially open on the freeway. There is definitely a lower level of airflow between the "off" and the first "on" fan setting as you mentioned.
