One of the four heater dash vents does not open

Customer Question

One of the four heater dash vents does not open automatically when the car is turned on. I can open it manually then it will close automatically when the car is turned off
JA: Have you checked the coolant level? Has there been any leaking from the hoses?
Customer: Coolant level is down a bit but no sign of hose leaking.
JA: What is the model/year of your Jaguar?
Customer: 2009 XF 4.2 litre not supercharged
JA: Are you fixing your XF yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: Have not tried anything yet on this problem, but have solved other of my Jaguar anomalies
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: A second issue is the interior dome lights. They seem to have a mind of their own and turn on at random times and I have to wave like crazy to get them to turn off. One goes off and they the other side of the middle comes on.

Passenger side outside vent
Customer: replied 1 month ago.
It is the Passenger side outside vent that does not automatically open. I asked this question on Aug 29 and it seems to have got lost. I will be on the road over the next few days so I would prefer the test type response rather than a live call.
