    It can also mean you have a vacuum line broken in your engine compartment that will prevent the valves to open or close at your control. Check for hisses around the engine when engine is at idle

My Air Cond. cold Air blows out the feet vents, but not the dash vents...WHY??


You most likely have a vacuum leak not allowing the vacuum operated vent/duct inside your instrument panel to operate. Check all of your rubber vacuum hoses in the engine compartment for leaks, cracks or breaks .

I have a 1995 Corvette and when I turn the air conditioner on the dashboard vents does not blow cool air


the a/c control is electric for temp control and vacuum for mode control when a leak occurs it defaults to defrost floor .look for a leak or broken vacuum line first then control panel then mode actuator.

Air Conditioner Will not turn on Recirculation


there is a selector motor on the side of the heat ac coil box under the dash. it should have 2 or 3 levers on the side of it. it controls the dampeners the select where your air is moving to from the defrost to the bi level to the floor or all of the above find that control module and then turn the car on and start moving the selector switch back and forth slowly while watching that module if its moving the levers then you have a more serious problem and need to have a professional look at it. check to make sure that the levers are even connected and that the wiring harness is even hooked to the control module

Cold Air Not Blowing Through Vents


Your last guess is probably the right one. The deflectors/directors are vacuum controlled and you may have vacuum line either broken or disconnected; these aren't fun to find. I would start under the hood and make sure the vacuum reservoir is intact (have seen them cracked) and then start tracing hoses from there.

Air conditioner vents only work on the floor vents.


being that it a dodge product they probably have used a vacuum based motor to switch where the air comes from. If this is the case then you must have leak somewhere. These are not easy to find they can take a lot of time or be quick it depends on the leak. to clarify does the heat or vent come out the top? is it supposed to?

1981 Corvette glass T-Top repair


Sure not a problem! I have a '76 Corvette. I use Mid America Motorworks. You may also want to search Ebay. I have purchased a lot of parts from both places, and have never been dissatisfied.

(I was a little skeptical about Ebay at first, but I dealt with those that have Ebay stores, checked their Seller rating, their Feedback score, and posted questions to them. Always got the part I wanted, and pretty darn fast!)

I bought my carpet set, and various steering components from Mid America Motorworks. They send me a catalog about two to three times a year. They have those T-Top gaskets sets for an '81 Corvette. Your Corvette is a C3 like mine.

Have a 1971 corvette with factory air,,the air works but weak,,the floor vents don't open on vent.I assume it's vaccum operated,so how does it work and where is the box which switches the air flow,,from...


Most of these components are located way up under the dash and may require removal of the entire dash to gain access. Any vacuum leak can cause this problem, as can a bad vacuum check valve, so check all lines using a vacuum gauge before you tear into it.

The problem is a 1/8 diameter hose that runs from the front of the engine over the top and connects at the rear of engine on the drivers side. It is a vacuum hose #GM15967970 It cost about $6.22 at your GM dealer. Hope this helps Bill. My E-Mail is Uflyups@aol.com
