    Had my car in the shop today, the problem was the cable that attaches the dial to the heat vent. Is being ordered from Ford and is approximately $70.00. He redirected the heat to defrost until the part comes in and is fixed this Friday. It is Oct 23 and was snowing this morning, drove to work with a foggy window. Had to wipe with a Kleenex every few minutes. Glad when this is fixed.

SOURCE: Jeep AC blows cold air at defrost and feet but not through vents

There is a flap that directs the air. the flap is controlled by a vacuum actuator. This is located inside the venting. The actuator is connected to little vacuum hoses that attach to the temperature control switch. Either the flap is stuck, or the actuator has gone bad.

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.

Cold& warm/air would not blow out in any vents. Put in new direction switch, air blow in all vents except the defrost vent. Swtich on defrost and it blows in dash vents in your face and nothing coming out...


The switch that controls the air flow is either operated /controlled using either wire, pneumatics, or electrically driven/controlled. Make sure that all of the connections at the damper are intact and working properly. Pneumatically driven is usually the most common on todays vehicles, so make sure you don't have a vacuum leak on any of the damper hoses.
I hope that you have found this information to be useful, and if I can be of any further assistance, please let me know. Thank you for using fixya!

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.

I have a 2007 ford explorer, all of a sudden, the ac blows only through the defroster,and at my feet. It will not blow through the front vents. The ac blows cold.


the blend door actuator is bad. there about 70 dollars at ford. make sure you hook up the actuator and put the control on defrost before you bolt it on the air box or you will brake the blend door.

The knob turns on the vent control but it does not change the air


you need to check the control wire is`nt broken most likely come out from flap connection just reconnect and it will work again,check the flap affected for free movement as could be jamming.
