So I took my 2005 Scion xB to the dealer that I bought it from because I thought there was an issue with the air diverter knob. The issue is this, when Front vents is selected it blows air out the top, when front and floor is selected it blows out both, BUT when just floor air is selected, it is still blowing air out all four vents up top in my face. They say that they checked another xB on the lot and it does the same thing as mine so they don't think there is an issue.

This is where I need your help please. I am not concerned with HOW to fix it, since they will be doing that. I just need to know of ANYONE who has a 1st Gen xB that behaves differently.

Please respond to this with whether yours is the same as mine (air blows out top and bottom even when floor is selected) or air only blows out bottom when floor is selected. I would think that a picture of air ONLY on the bottom would mean only out the bottom, but maybe xB's are different. On a side note, I owned a brand new 2006 in 2006 and I swear it didn't behave like this but maybe I am getting old and forgot! :)

Your responses will be greatly appreciated!

My diverter and temperature control work kinda the same way. If I turn either dial all the way to the left, if will automatically bounce back a few clicks. Although the route shows mostly face air, it is definitely more feet than face.

I recall seeing in my manual that when "floor" is selected, it will still blow air from the vents closest to the doors (I will confirm that tomorrow, unless someone has a manual handy).

Yeah, the neighbor has an xB and his blows out all 4 top ones, like mine is doing. Guess it's a pretty small issue, but I really wanted to know whether I was crazy. Thank you so much for the input. I'm going to look in the owner's manual

Just out of curiosity, is yours blowing out the middle 2 or just the one's closest to the door? Also, is yours a 2005 or 2006?

Can confirm. Mine has always done that.

Mine is a 2005, and when "floor" is selected it'll blow air at your feet as well as air from the outer two vents (the ones closest to the windows like DTRAIN said). If "head" is selected then it'll blow through the middle two vents.
