When you turn on the A/C on a friend's C5, the drivers side vent blows hot air and the passenger side blows cold.  Are the vents vacuum operated or gear/motor driven??  Has anyone out there experienced and repaired this problem??

I own a 1999 C5 Corvette and I am having the same problem. When I turn on the heat or air it blows warm or cold on the passenger side but not the drivers side. I haven't taken it anywhere yet to see what the issue is and once I find out I'll post it.
