C5 aircon

Thanks for the special forum. Can I be first with a new question?
2001 C5 V6 Climate control (fancy air con!) displays some very weird behaviour. When first switching on everything seems okay, in cold weather the car heats up and in hot weather the car cools down. Well almost! As the car gets close to the correct temp the driver’s side decides to chuck cold air at you and the passenger’s side tries to compensate by chucking hot air out!
This is not a function of the Cooler as the same happens in ECO mode eg: air con off.
I guess its something to do with the air flow temperature sensor on the driver’s side, but how do I check?
