Turning the vent control knob doesn't change where the air

Customer Question

Turning the vent control knob doesn't change where the air comes out. It mainly blows from the front vents, and a little from the defroster and foot wells.

I am sorry that you have not been helped yet. I just came online and saw your question.

Most likely this is a failure of the mode door actuator which controls air flow direction thru the vents, or possibly a broken vacuum line to the actuator. Unfortunately, in either case, the whole dash has to come off to access them as they are on the hvac housing behind the dash. This is an approximate 5.5 hour job
