GM had a bulletin regarding this several years ago. There can be an air leak from the cowl into the heater box. You need to remove the trim on the cowl by the wipers. Under that you find a oval shaped metal plate that is sealed with caulk on the pass side. You need to scrape the caulk off and with a chisel break the plate loose and remove it. Inside of that is a passageway that supplies air to the heater. The seam inside that passage is leaking and allowing cold air to come in behind the glovebox. Seal the seam up with caulk, or sealant. I have used the sticky alum foil tape. It's a little easier to work with. Doesn't have to be pretty. Replace the cover and hold it down with a couple sheet metal screws and recaulk around the edge.

Your vehicle is now very old and will develop such issues. The blend door is operated by a vacuum motor, and may get stuck if in need of lubrication or if there is a vacuum leak under the dashboard (especially if your automatic brake release is leaking vacuum... very common issue).
Check for vacuum leaks, and lubricate the blend door (behind the glove compartment).

Does the air blows through the dash board vents. Does the selector is functional, that means you can force the air stream through wind shield, or vents or down to the legs. If these things are OKthen check CONTROL PANEL.
Remove the trim plate surrounding the center instrument panel. Detach the electrical connectors and remove the control panel.

A/c does not blow out of the dash on my 2002 ford expedition but instead blows out of the defrost. i understand that this is probably a vacuum leak somewhere and my question is where should i look?

your director/deflector motor being it vacuum or electric is either soooo dirty or inoperable it can't send air thru proper ductwork,it needs to operate(move air dams) so air is channeled toward proper ductwork, its usually behind glove box
by where Heater- a/c enters vehicle compartment from engine side

The intake air filter is located under the hood on the right side ( a black tube leading to a black box which the filter is in). the cabin air filter is behind the glove compartment, just unscrew the one screw on the right of the glove compartment which holds the linkage and remove the two black tabs on each side of the inside of the glove compartment, to do this simply turn and pull each tab ( a little plier may be useful because they may be kinda tight). the glove compartment should now fall freely. behind it is a white tray which holds the air filter, simply pull it out and clean it or replace it, HINT...the funky smell that comes out of your air vents is usually caused by a dirty cabin air filter
