It probably runs to the ac/heater control. You will have to remove any plastic panels that are in the way and with a light you should be able to see where it goes through the firewall. Mostly a time consuming, irritating job. The last one I did, I took the seat out so I could lay down & work. Hope this helps, Rick

Ford explorer will blow air out defrost only


More than likely vacuum problem--Supply line runs from vacuum reservoir to dash control panel--no vacuum on that line will cause control doors to stay in defrost mode--lines are plastic, and were bad to break from age. If lines look OK be sure vacuum is being supplied to line--from reservoir and to reservoir. Lastly line could be off dash controller or a bad dash controller or lines and or vacuum pods downstream--usually you can hear inside leaks. NOTE: defrost is default mode.

Vacuum vent control


You will need to look at the area behind the dash to see if a line was left unhooked at the control panel for the a/c defroster selector. If as you said, a line was burned, you will need to find it further back behind the dash and replace it. An unhooked line will need to be reattached to a small device that may look like a bellows. The are back there is tight but if you had work done, you hopefully still have it open from the front. Any parts store can sell you the vacuum line you will need for this fix. Good luck.

The blower runs but it wont come out the vents


It's most likely a vacuum line, look under your hood (close to the cowl panel) for a disconnected, cracked or broken vacuum line.

In some rear cases, it could be the vacuum switch (in dash). Or vacuum diaphragm (under dash).

Hope this helps you ???

How do I fix a broken ac damper in my 2003 Grand Marquis? For a few days, there would be intermittent clicking behind the dash, related to the car vacuum levels. Now the heater is stuck on, though all...


there should be some plastic covers under the dash (kick pannels) , you will need to remove... Most of the air plenum is located on the passanger side.. so start under the glove box and remove those pieces of plastic first.
When the cover panels are off... opperat the climate controls and listen and look where the noise is comming from... With any luck... you will hear a vacuum hiss and find it is just a cracked vacuum line you need to replace.

Its the Black vacumn pipe that will of cracked etc-look for the small thin black pipe that runs from left of engine bay and goes behind air box and top of engine-its a sod to replace but takes an hour or so!! Good luck..

My f150 4x4 wont engage and i have already change the actuator at both wheels and the thing on the fire wall the vac lines go to and still no 4x4


You may need to work upwards from the wheels past the thing on the firewall. If the part on the firewall has vacuum lines coming out of it, then it must have a vacuum line going into it to provide the vacuum.

You need to trace the vacuum line and see if it has vacuum. You can unplug the line to test it by listening for the hiss as the engine runs or get a vacuum gauge or vacuum pump.

It may be something simple like a broken knob on the dash control that is slipping around the stem the knob attaches to.

A/c comes out of front defroster. I also found a vacuum hose lose near the front firewall and I cant find out where it goes.


I tried to give you a vaccum diagram but the manufacture will not release that info to outsiders. you need to find where the hose goes to.if you loose vac to the controls it goes to defrost mode.
