I have noticed that when I open up a window, the air flow coming out from the dash vents is much higher than when all windows are should be like this but I thing it is too low/weak to be normal....

It seems to me that the vent that let's the air out (=cabin recirculation vent?) could be clogged or something hence preventing a good air ventilation taking place .
Any clue to where this "vent" is located or how to get to it ?

Many thanks for your help.

Looking at some life module pics I bet its the rectangle on each side of the rear quarter:
