little electric motor/fan behind the dash was the issue
Yes, I have found the issue - the little electric fan specifically behind the right (passenger) air vent.
I removed the glove compartment and the air vent cover, and teh little motor was easy to access and remove.
now to purchase a new one.
Thanks for the help
