Comes up and out of the 'Dogbox' with a cherry picker. (Can you say No Fun?)

You go through the side sliding door with a cherry picker.

Take the engine cover loose, and remove it. Now attach your lifting cradle, (Or chain with bolts so that the chain doesn't slide in the lifting hook), to the top of the engine. Lift up and back. Keep working it up, and out, of that small compartment. Use three people, and BE CAREFUL! Always have an exit planned in case something goes wrong. Stand away from the engine, not crowded down in there as you remove it.

The vents in my 2000 Astro Van quit working

There is a thin vacuum hose running across the top of the engine from the front left side to the rear. this connects to the back of your a/c position switch. Over time it becomes brittle and cracks therefore leaving your vents stuck in it's last positon. Cut out the bad section and purchase about 3 feet of rubber hose at the auto store. Take a piece of the bad section with you to see which size hose will fit onto it. Slip it over the cut ends and pass it thru the space where the windshild washer fluid hose is attached to the back wall. This will keep it up and away from the heat. I had this problem on a 1997, 1999 and 2002 Astro and fixed the problem for less that $3.

The mode control switch is either defective or the switch has no vacuum, the motors that send the air to different outlets are powered by vacuum.
