There's a fan blowing across the core, capable of two speeds (the "on" switch is a three position switch: off, low and high speed).
There's a plastic "register" which pulls air in at floor level just behind the driver's seat and exhausts warmed air from under the first row of rear cabin seats.
(i have to admit that i've never found it useful... turning on the front heater (with boost/auxiliary if need be) full blast does a better job of warming the rear). Too much plumbing out in the breezes...
