Cold Air Pours Onto Feet In Passenger Side Of Vehicle
2005 Ford Escape Hybrid - in cold weather cold air dumps onto the feet of the right front passenger.This is not a case of a cold engine or bad heater core, the heater makes lots of heat, it’s a matter of cold air getting into the vehicle.It seems to be coming out of the heater box somewhere. The dealer cut up a piece of head liner and stuck under the dash to redirect the cold air but that at best is a short term fix. The dealer told me the problem is common to Escapes and Explorers and Ford has no fix for it.Ford customer service just gives me the run around and won’t answer my simple question of is there now a fix for the problem.Any ideas?

Thats a hell of an answer from a dealer. and i wouldn't except it. tell them to fix it or you'll report them to better buisness bureau. as for their FIX. it's a joke. obviously a damper problem. good luck.

Fresh air vent door is not closing,,, or blend door not working,,check elec or vac switches behind glove box for proper move ment,,, or if you have duel climate controls if could be defective ,,,not working on that side
Some ideas for you: Usually the problem is the drain hose from the air conditioning in your vehicle is leaking or plugged up or was damaged somehow and the condensate water is running onto your floor. Was the car even in an accident where the right front fender was involved? Might you have insects such as a mud-dauber wasp might have built a mud nest inside the bottom of the drain tube? The drain tube usually would drain the water only when running the A.C. out under the feet of your passenger, but under the car, not inside. I just finished two years of chasing a leak that was on the driver's side of an old Honda Civic, to find salt had eaten a hole in the firewall under the windshield behing the driver's wiper assembly.
I'm going to assume the fan louvers (that direct air from wind shield head to feet ect) are electronically controlled. If that is the case, then a motor may have died. You only have one AC system for the vehicle, so if its cold on one side, then the fault lies within the air ducting system. Maybe a mouse built a nest in there and is blocking air flow?
you cant adjust it ,this requires the dealers computer to re set it,or a phyiscal control has packed up like a vacumn pipe has split where it pushes onto the valve that controls the flap in the heater unit.
