Hi, Many thanks for your reply. This vent opens and closes manually with hardly any effort. Maybe this is the normal setup. Thanks again.

If you can open and close the air vent without any effort, I'm pretty sure, something is broken in the mechanism. I think I rememnber, it has been discussed here some years ago, but I don't have time to search for it right now. Normally, you can't just open and close the air vent by hand. I don't suppose, the other three air vents behave the same way.

Simple fix, plenty of YouTube videos. Part is around £8. I did mine just before Xmas, relatively easy job.

Because the three central vents work perfectly, automatically, I am hesitant to interfere with them manually. The permanently open vent on the drivers side is not an inconvenience, but just seemed unusual for it not to be automatic.

All 4 vents are automatic when new, so yours is broken.
The youtube video with detailed repair and the plastic part details which usually breaks:

Probably the rightmost vent is the easiest to take out, I would recommend downloading a free workshop manual, that will clearly show you where to pry trims in what sequence to get it out for repair.
