2004 explorer: ac..not blowing hard..blower changes speeds..air inlet

Customer Question

2004 explorer ac and heat blower not blowing hard. The blower changes speeds but the air volume is not very strong. It seems like the air inlet is not open. Where is the air inlet?

You have two air inlets depending on weather or not you have selected the recirculate feature or you are drawing air from outside! If you have the a/c set on max a/c does the air blow normal and when you have the a/c set on normal a/c does it seem to not have as much flow? Or is it the same in either setting?

the same in either direction

Set the a/c to max and take a look under the passenger side of the dash, see if maybe you might have a plastic grocery bag or other debris caught in the air return, If you do not see anything you may need to remove the blower motor and inspect the fan wheel to see if some debris got inside and is restricting the fan wheel ability to move the air
