A load of hot air (from the vents)

Brrr... it's cold out this evening so the heating's been on. In doing this I've discovered that the outer face vents blow hot air when it's manually directed to my feet only and the air from footwell outlet seems a bit weedy unless whacked up to max.

Is this normal? If not, any idea what's wrong?

2006 9-3 Aero with facelift interior.

not sure never really noticed tbh but if you have on manual would expect you get fair whack at footwell, could have problem with blend motor.............what happens if you close face vents
is it the same if you turn blowers up full as your in manual mode ?
could do with someone else advice here as regards to a blend motor problem, although you wont get the same force as you would from vents/defrost ........will give mine a try tomorrow
check blend motors flaps and the ducts for seal bit of a faf tbh but if it needs doing
well that confirms my thoughts lol

not long got in so will check mine the meantime agree thick socks :D
it will be slow if on auto and set to warm until engine is warm but you have on manual so should over ride
