The fresh air intake is through the upper part of the firewall to the blower unit. Pretty sure there is a door on the blower unit that blocks fresh air and opens to the interior.

Remove cabin filters and look up. If the recirculation mode door is open you will see the bottom of the plastic cowl cover near the wiper arms. Or remove cowl panel and you will see the cabin filters.

I shouldn't have guessed. Two doors operated by the same motor swing up above the cabin air filter to block the fresh air intake and open up to the cabin.
