Default Heater Not Working on Driver Side

I noticed that the heat was coming out warm and kept putting it on at
a higher level, and still I felt cool breeze on my legs when I set it
to come from the under dash vent while driving. Once home, I noticed
it was very mildly warm from the vent under the driver dash but quite
hot on the passenger side at Levels 2 and 3 and also from the vents to
the backseat from under the front seats. What could be causing just
one of the vents not to provide toasty hot heat?

oh boy, thats a good one...did you inspect the vent for any visible
blockage? is the air flow strong? I would have thought that the duct
work would all be interconnected at some point. What year is the car?
that certainly is a good question, but I don't believe I have ever
heard anything like that before...i hope you can get it it sorted out!
good luck

It's a 2000 Camry. I don't know much about cars except how much the
various repairs cost me (I don't do my own work). I figured I'd ask
before taking it in to a shop so I don't get snowed over. I couldn't
get in under the dash so I tried looking with a mirror and had a clear
view of the vent on the passenger side (the one that's working fine)
but had less success on the driver's side where all those wires upside
down were making me dizzy.

Thank you for the reply.
