Default How can I tell if my air recirculation door is working?

When my ecc is turned down to it'* coldest setting and the fam is in auto mode, I can't hear any differance to tell if it'* working or not. I have had poor fan output (not much air blowing out) so I tried cleaning the evap core. It looked clean and even after cleaning it, it made little or no differance in output. Could my blower motor be going bad also?

I beleive the recirc door is buried internally to the dash with no visibility. I'll find out either tonight or tomorrow.

IIRC it'* above the driver'* feet, maybe above the brake pedal area. The door motor is visible nearer the hump and the tube sticks further to the left and the recycled air is taken in there.
