Arrow Centre air vents not blowing

My sister just bought a mk1 Punto and the centre air vents dont seem to blow any air on any setting. The centre and top centre vents.

What could have caused this?

Thanks

I presume you have opened the vent tap on the actual blowers themselves right?

Yep.

Last night no air was coming out. I tried it today and some air came out. Weird.

I've found it sometimes pays to ask the obvious. I don't suppose you park under any deciduous trees do you? I occasionally get the odd leaf blown through the system, you could have a forest's worth in there.

I've not actually taken apart the blower matrices, but have you tried closing all other vents and setting the fan to full-blast? Might dislodge whatever is in there. Alternatively, take the vent fronts off an shove a slim vacuum cleaner pipe down there. It should be long enough to reach any blockage since the centre's feed is not that long.
