This flap is controlled by a vacuum operated actuator. Either the actuator is bad, or there is a leaky or missing vacuum hose for it. Or flap is just stuck

2000 pontiac montana air conditioner driver side vent blow warm air yet passenger side and rear vents blow cold air. sometimes the driver side vent blow cold air. is flapper valve stuck sometimes?


That is correct, the air blend door actuator. "flapper valve" may need to be replaced or cleaned and free from binding up. Good luck and hope this helps. If there is an Auto Zone in your area, they can order the part you need and give you the step by step instructions to removing the old actuator and replacing it if it's damaged. Good luck and keep me posted, be glad to help.

Air conditioner not blowing out of panel vents on 2000 Lincoln Navigator. It's blowing cold but when you cut on panel vents it only blows out on the floor and out of the defrost vents.


sounds like the leakages that operate the flapper are misaligned or bent. if its electrically operated then actuator could be going bad

1986 Buick Skylark heater blows out cold air


In many cars there is a flapper valve in the ductwork which is sometimes vacuum actuated.If this flapper is stuck or the vacuum line is unhooked or deteriorated,you will not feel any warm air at the vents.Look under the dash for rubber vacuum lines or try moving the selector knob for HOT/COLD or FEET/VENT/DEFROST while revving engine alittle to increase vacuum.
