Default 97 camry recirculation duct location

I'm trying to eliminate odors within the venting system. The
directions tell me to spray this stuff into the return duct under the
passenger dash area but I can't find it. I have removed the plastic
panel that hides the blower motor and can see pretty much everything
under there but the only visible vent is the one that blows onto the
feet. Where is the duct that sucks air from within the cabin when you
put it in RECIRC mode?

I have noticed vents under the front seats, could those be them? Or do
those provide heat for the rear passengers?

Spray some of that stuff in that area on the passenger side and you will see
where it is getting sucked in, WBMA

Those vents are for the rear passengers when the system is set to FEET.

I can't do that. This stuff is foamy and it won't get sucked up by
air. It has to be sprayed into the inlet and left on and reciculating
for ten minutes.

Try getting you head down in there then switch the recirc on and off. You
will hear where the inlet is located.

Take a strip on something very light, like a strip of tissue. Turn on RECIRC
and move strip until you find where there is a vacuum.

You should not have to remove anything to get at the intake for the return
duct. The intake has grillwork over it, the ducts that supply air to the
passenger's feet do not. You might have to use a flashlight or drop light
to see the intake.

B-G sells stuff called Frigi-Fresh that is very effective. You should ask
at car dealers to see if they carry it.

Passenger side or driver's side? I couldn't find anything on the
passenger side and even Haynes manual doesn't show it. I know it
exists, but where?

The dealer is the one who recommended Frigi-Fresh and told me to do
this procedure. I couldn't find that brand at auto parts stores and
bought a different kind that claims to do the same. Do you think I
should return it?

Golferman
I don't think that there is an actual "Return Duct" I think it is
simply an opening in the blower ass'y thru which air gets sucked in
when you are in "Recirc" position. If you can get to the blower you can
spray your stuff in there.
Another(better?) possibility is to set the system for "outside air"
rather than "recirc" and spray you stuff at the base of the windshield.
