SOURCE: 2002 Toyota Camry LE has no heat to the floor regardless of the setting

I temporarily fixed this issue on an 02 Camry last night . It has to do with the little plastic arm that opend the door to the floor vents. Get in driver's side and look under the dash toward the center on the cabin air box. There is a small white plastic bit with a cheanell in it and it i supposed to mate to white plastic bit with a little metal knob in the end. The plastic chanell wears out and allows the metal know to come free, hence the door to the floor vents wont open . It's quote obvious once you get down there and loot at it . Simply put the two pieces back together and its all good, creative use of a very small zip tie will fix this one for good.

SOURCE: Hi, I own a 2002

Yes this can happen. It could have come from an overloaded glove box and then got in behind it and sucked up. It is also possible it could have gotten shoved up underneath the dash as some shopping bags have empty bags attached to them and then come apart while you are driving. What I am trying to say is the repair shop is legit in their findings. The reason for this filter is just that so it doesn't damage the fan motor assembly and/or get a lot of dust/dirt in your system and that is hard to clean out cheap. This is quite common. I hope you take this explanation and thanks for using FixYa.

Ac only comes out of defrost and floor vent, not dash

The ducts have dampers that work off of a vacuum and control the flow of air to the different air vents at the top, bottom and face of the dash. Sometimes the vacuum lines come loose or break. You'll need to look under the dash to see if any of these conditions exist.

Air conditioner


what is your goal hot air, you never said,

got full fan speed? on high>? sure.
got full engine coolant heat 180F or more holding??? if not all is lost.
if car has a heater core water valve is it open>?
are the 2 heater core water tubes both fully hot,(hand test)
yes> good.
now you need air flow through the core (heater)
that means the damper most be open,, is it?

in that order. (heat)
the dampers on hondas can be complex. (10x on electric damper motors , aka, damper actuators)
see part 5 and 6 here

the fSM covers the complex tests of dampers, and not having
a real FSM makes this near impossible.
why , because your dampers are no like anyothers on earth.
other cars use different types. and are all unique .
unlike CABLES
unlike vacuum servos.

here are the basics for heat.

I have a 1999 VW Passat. No heat blows from the floor vents or the rear passenger vent. The heat from the dash blows strong and hot with no problem. What could be the problem and could i make the repair...

These vehicles where prone to heater core failure. It lives in center of dash against the fire wall.

When this repair is done at the dealership, the tech is paid only 6 hours. The job takes 10 to 12 hours.

So, what does he do?.....he doesn't put everything he took out back again, which on this job would be the ducts that are along side the 'transmission tunnel' to the rear vent.

Ergo = No rear heat .

On the other hand, it could be the system is stuck in Default..'Windscreen vent priority'.

When I turn on the heater or defroster, the left side vents blow cool air while the right side vents blow hot air. what could the problem be?

there is 2 electronic damper controls for driver and passenger heat and cool controls directly in the middle of the car under the dash near the floor. They move the damper for temperature control up and down when you slide the switch. One of them probably got stuck or just died. same thing happened to me but mine was just stuck and I had to free it up. hope this helps

If your talking about no air flow, at the vents, floor,defrost, there are no doors that will restrict air flow, then you have a plugged Ac evaporater core, with foriegn matter, leaves, dirt, and oil from the ac itself, leak in evap leak cause this, as long as the blower is working on all speeds, remove the motor for inspection and evap , an other way to inspect the evap, remove the evap sensor grommet, look inside of hvac, the core will be plugged, this is an expesive repair to do.

Poor air flow from floor vents or when multiple vents choosen

There has to be something blocking the output somewhere. Check where vents come out to see if something has fallen down to block them.
