Default recirculating air/ fresh air is constant

My 06 jetta has fresh air coming into the cab no matter if the recirc air button is on or off, Is the flap stuck or is there a fuse possibly blown? If you have run into this problem let me know, Thanks

I realize that not all cars are the same, but try activating each position with recirc off and then try with it on. I had a stuck flap/cable/something at one point (I got in the dash and got it stuck, oops), and I fixed it by trying every position until it moved smoothly. My problem was that I couldn't move it to defrost.

With it in the 'OFF' setting there will be No airflow.

Even with the recric, it still takes in a small percentage of outside air..

Not knowing how the HVAC system is set up, it sounds like something is just caught. Just move to each position and leave it there for 5-10 seconds and continue on to the next, then do the same thing with recirculate on. If that fails, you might have a leak or a broken flap somewhere. Look under the glove box for anything that might look broken (like, get on your back and look up) - the Jetta might not have anything to look at (remove the plastic part, maybe?), but my Altima definitely had a cable that was actuated by the temp lever and if something is caught in the cable (like an RCA cable), it doesn't work right.

HTH.

I always have some flow with the fan switch in off. I only notice it tho when I have the air flow going to the vents facing you.

While the car is in motion, or sitting still?

I had a problem with the electrical motor that moves the flapper and directs air flow. My problem started with a vibration directly behind the passenger side glovebox when the car was initially started. After taking off the glovebox (previous pictoral write-up helped me), the motor and flapper will be directly in front of you. The flapper is located right of center. A green rubber gasket covers the flapper sides.
With the glovebox removed, cycle the recirc button. If the motor is working correctly, the flapper will open and close. If the flapper motor is faulty, you will need to unbolt a power panel mounted directly in front of the electrical motor. The motor is mounted by a snap connection and is fairly easy to remove and replace.

Default link to step by step glovebox

This link will get you to the removal procedure.

The electric motor is way-easy to replace after removing the electrical power panel from it's mounts. Be careful to mount the motor/gears in the correct position (recirc or outside air) prior to installation.
