    a/c circulation switch not responding

    hello,
    i have a 2000 astra 1.8 and when i turn the a/c on and push the circulation switch, the a/c still takes the air from the outside...
    what is the problem and is it very expensive to repair?

    thank you

    the recirculation only works when the ventilation directional knob is set to certain positions.

    For instance re-circulation will NOT work when its positioned at windscreen only.

    Press the re-circulation button and rotate the directional knob until the re-circ button lights up and therefore air re-circulation (and MAX A/C flow) is activated

    update:
    problem solved by disengaging the rod from the electrical motor and closing the flap manually.
