air recirculate

i normally keep the air recirculate function on to help cool the xterra better on the hotter days but ocassionally turn it off to let some fresh outside air in...with that being said i have noticed that some outside air is coming into the cabin with the air recirculate button pushed on like maybe it's partially open...has anyone else experienced this? and what might be the culprit?

Even though the door is closed, it won't completely shut off the outside air. If it's allowing a ton of air into the cabin, then maybe the motor is sticking, but a little bit of air is normal.

Especially helpful when your wife farts inside the truck and doesn't tell you. You don't want to smell that forever! It's worse than my dog. In theory (women don't fart, from what I've been told).

yes its very minimal but i really had not noticed it before so i was thinking maybe the door was staying open a little...and from what i understand females are under the impression that their farts smell like strawberry shortcake-i on the other hand beg to differ my friend lol

also if you have it set to front defrost it will always pull air from the outside. Not exactly sure why they do it that way, but every car I have ever owned does that.

Apply dirt liberally, rinse and repeat
