    When I look inside the air vents, I can see a small piece of foam that appears to be lose. All my vents have it and looks lose. Does the foam have a purpose and why would it be lose? I am tempted to rip it out, thinking that it will increase the air flow.

    It's all in my head at the moment...
    If you pull that foam, your next post will be, "How do I get rid of this whistling sound from my vents?" The foam is a go between/seal from where the front part/face of the dash is connected. It looks as if the foam has slipped out. Is it under warranty? If so tell them there is a decrease of airflow from the HVAC and they may fix it.

    thanks for the tip. I am over 50K miles, so I might try to push the foam into a better sit with some chopsticks or something.
