Question about 2004 Mini Cooper
The diverter which allows ventilation air to blow to the floor level is somehow 'stuck'. Turning it off and on, switching to the windshield or dashboard vents won't unstick it. (Those work fine.) If I can get a picture of what it looks like and where it is, I could perhaps give it a nudge or something. Is it vacuum operated? Electric? I don't want to start taking things apart haphazardly, but my feet are cold! Thanks, Ken E
This sounds like a vacume line is damaged or broken! Check lines! one may be pinched!
Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

In the duct work or engine compartment are vacuum lines that are collapsed ,melted or broken that feed the vacuum pressure to open and close the doors.
Tough job finding them if you are not a mechanic!
Thank You Huum

It is electrically controlled. If you go and buy a haynes manual or a chilton manual (or just look at one in an auto parts store) then you can find the exact way to access it for your specific vehicle as diagrams aren't available online. If you have any questions with this, let me know but the manual will be the easiest thing to go with or you can also go to your local dealer and they should have factory diagrams which aren't always as helpful as the manuals.
