Hello, if it is blowing out the defrost vents only and you have a vacuum supply at the climate control panel, then the issue is with the climate control head. They are expensive if still available. A better option would be to see if a shop in your area will rebuild the control panel.What happens is inside the control panel there are small orings on the control valves inside that go bad, the seals are replaced and will restore the vent operation
