Mine cycle properly (all open, then close) but then they open up a quarter inch.
I thought I read that the louvres don't fully close when you have the windshield defrost on? When it's cold, my car squeaks (for 1/2 a second or something) when I turn on the windshield defrost on. I never checked if it was the AGS or the blender door, though.
