Seeing how it is that time of year assure the recirc flap spring is
functional, I ended up having to replace mine because of major fogging
problems, of course.  I thought I'd pass along a utility spring size that I
used from a hardware store--super easy to find and way cheaper than anything

7/16" X 1-7/8" X 047 (which I think is the gauge of the spring wire) OR Size

This spring is working perfectly.  Thought I'd share this so those who need to
replace it can get it before rooting around in your footwell.  Cost $2 for two
of them (one for next year:)) and installed in about 15 minutes.  Also, I was
able to replace mine without removal of the glovebox, which was suggested by
others to remove.  I found it not necessary.
