Classic failure here  is the spring connecting the recirc flap (to a
diaphragm, I
believe) located behind the glove box - it either breaks , or the the
plastic pin 
that holds it in place breaks, in my case the pin broke, before I tore into
it I 
asked my mechanic, he drilled in a new pin and attached a new spring for under 
$30.  Didn't even remove anything, has done it so often he can just contort 
around underneath to reach it.

If you don't smell anything, look here first.
