Ford focus station wagon

We have a 2007 station wagon and the vent control direction knob just snapped off and is stuck on the floor vent. It would appear that the inside is an hexagonal sleeve for the knob. How do I repair the problem. From what i gather it is not the knob that is the problem but a cable behind. How to I access this and how do I repair it? Thanks

See the diagram attached. You must test the device electric, like motor, wires, switch, for dirty, oxide, corrosion, loose wires, with your VOM, and fix it. God bless youford focus station wagon - 46261fa5-494b-44b0-a1ec-d0a74f3f2c9e.jpg

Might be the same....You may want to do the diagnosis proceedure. Alot of times its the door actuators. Servos in replace of old cable design. Usually it will be a code 46. DOOR BLEND ACTUATOR SHORT TO BATTERY.
The DTC's can be checked with the MTC control and the Odometer Display of the Mechanical Instrument Cluster if a DRBIII® scan tool is not available. The MTC control can only be placed into the diagnostic mode while the engine is running and the vehicle is not moving. To place the system into it's diagnostic mode, adjust the MTC control to the following settings:

  1. The engine must be running with vehicle not moving.
  2. The fan speed set to any speed except OFF.
  3. The temperature control knob in full cold (full counterclockwise position).
  4. The mode control knob must be placed in Defrost position (full clockwise position).
  5. The A/C button can be On or Off.
  6. Press and hold the rear window defogger (EBL) button until the mechanical instrument cluster odometer display indicates an "AC00". The BCM will chime once and the MTC A/C button LED will begin blinking.
  7. Release the EBL button and wait until the MTC A/C button LED stops blinking. This means that the error check and climate control door calibration is complete. NOTE: It is important that no other control knob or button is pushed until all DTC's are read. Pushing any button except the A/C button or turning a control knob will end the diagnostic test without showing the rest of the DTC's. There also may be other DTC's stored in the BCM not related to the climate control system. These DTC's can only be found using the DRBIII® scan tool.
    DTC's related to the MTC control head will appear on the odometer display in numerical form after the letters "AC". The odometer display will return to normal operation if no DTC's are found. If a problem is found, then the odometer will display the letters "A/C" followed by the DTC number. The odometer display can only show one DTC at a time. Under certain circumstances, more than one DTC could be in the memory. To scroll through any additional DTC's, press the A/C button on the MTC control. The BCM will beep each time the A/C button is pushed. Continue pushing the A/C button and recording the DTC's until the odometer returns to normal operation (note the letters AC will dissapear.

2005 Ford Focus. Air is blowing out of the floor vents and defrost vents but not dash vents. Also the knob will not go onto the dash vent option it's like it just springs back up.


A failure has occurred in the HVAC system, legally, when a fault happens the hvac system will default to defrost/floor. Further diagnostics will be needed to determine issue.

How to repair


i'd think that the vent adjuster knob/slider is not working correctly strip out the heater panel around the control knobs and check the vent direction is working properly either stiff operation so a little wd40 on the cable would probably do the trick or some thing causing the vent itself to not move

. Air won't blow out of the floor or center vents just defrost ? Do you have manual or automatic climate control ?
Air Flow Control
Air flow control is accomplished in the following manner:
  • Primary control is through the function selector knob mounted on the A/C-heater function selector switch, which is part of the integrated control panel.
  • The function selector knob has the following positions: OFF, MAX A/C, A/C, PANEL, PANEL/FLOOR, FLOOR, FLOOR/DEFROST and DEFROST. The A/C-heater function selector switch combines a vacuum selector valve with an internal electrical switch.
  • The vacuum selector valve directs source vacuum to various vacuum control motors (18A318). Refer to the Vacuum Control Diagram , System Airflow Schematics and Vacuum Control Chart .
  • Two internal, single-pole electrical switches are also controlled by the A/C-heater function selector switch. The combination of these electrical switches controls the electrical supply to the A/C clutch and heater blower motor switch (18578).
  • The position of the function selector knob determines the manner in which the system will operate.
  • Each position of the function selector knob is detented for positive engagement.
  • Vacuum Control Motors The vacuum control motors (18A318):
    • are located on the A/C evaporator housing, A/C recirculation air duct and heater air plenum chamber (18471).
    • direct system airflow to the vehicle interior as determined by the remote climate control module or manual override.
    • The five-passenger seating configuration has an additional vacuum control motor mounted on the heater air plenum chamber to control airflow to the rear seat A/C register (19893).

I have a 2005 Ford Focus. My vent distribution knob turns freely but does not change air direction. It remains blowing from the defrost vents. I pooped off the face around the knobs and stereo to look...


The part you're describing is the blend door actuator. It diverts air through the different ports, (floor, vent, defrost, mix). The good news is depending on what you need (new lever or new blend door) the price runs about $30-40. As far as ease of installation, it sounds like you have unobstructed access so replacing it shouldn't be too difficult.
