[DML] air box leakage


I'm overhauling the cockpit of my delorean becuase the blower doesnt 
operate properly - i have the knee pads and center console removed, and 
i have removed the plastic ducting box that sits on the front of the 
main heater/ac air box. this leaves the main box completely exposed.

at some point someone has had this all to peices and really botched 
putting it back together again (the actuator that sits to the right of 
the radio and operates the flap behind the two courtesy vents on the 
center console has the top snapped off, and the spring was lying on the 
floor behind the air box, mountings are snapped, gaskets torn, screws 
screwed diagonally into plastic, and all manner of other horrors)

i have determined that the common problem with the foam that blanks the 
redundant hole in the back of the main air box is an issue with my car - 
one corner is peeled away, so i will glue this back on. i have serviced 
the blower motor and oiled the bearings.

i am going to test any actuators i can access.

is there anything anyone can think of that i ought to check before i put 
it all back together again?

also, i'm not sure if this is right, but on the front of the main air 
box, there is a flap that opens to feed air to that front ducting box 
that i removed. beneath it is an identical metal flap that is sealed 
shut (obviously blanking a redundant vent from some other car) the 
trouble is there is a 5mm gap between the flap and the blank. i'm sure 
this shouldnt be the case, and is in fact an air leak. can someone 
confirm this?
