OH ! The doors on the Windstar are plastic and brake, it is run by vacuum. You can look under the dash and see it the levers are moving if the are then the inside door is probably broken. This is a long job as most of the dash MUST be removed to replace the plastic door.

Heat does not blow onto windscreen but blows through other vents - whats wrong


What make an model an year vehicle do you have ? The air blows out of the floor vents an center vents but not defrost ? Possible mode actuator , stuck mode door ! There is a door inside the heater / A/C assembly that directs the air to the desired position . These doors can be moved by a vacuum operated actuator or an electric motor . Sometimes thing's put on the dash end up inside the heater box , fall through defroster vent ! Pens , pencils etc.. Depends on the make vehicle an system , manual , or automatic climate control . Some of the newer vehicles the HVAC system as it is called , the control panel is a electronic control module an can store DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes !

A/c and heat dash vents won't work but all others are fine


check the actuator motor on the heater sounds like the motor is not directing the air as it should. The motor is in the center of the truck inside attached to the heater and has arms on it to move the heater and ac doors.

1996 Montero Heater Blower not working


I assume your heater setting is electric control, if so either your defrost and floor heat switch failed or wire problem. For the air not hot, check the heat control valve on the top of the hose it should be in front of the firewall. I don't know your car is using mechanic valve or electric control valve. Anyway check there first. Good luck.
