How far have you gotten with it?
Are you looking for instructions on replacing the air inlet door assembly?
We can continue here. What are you looking for, instructions on replacing the air inlet door assembly?
I remember you, but I need you to get me caught up to speed on what you now need. We bounced all around your vehicle last time.
I am not set up for phone calls at this time. My phone is owned by my dealership.
My family are in the Canton area on the west side of NC.
How many miles do you have on your 2003 Explorer?Have you had any AC work done to the vehicle?
Just so I completely understand your problem, you do not get much of any air flow out of the vents, but you can ear the blower motor running at all speeds?
I think you may have a clogged up evaporator. Dirt and other debris clogging up the fins of the evaporator which will not allow air to flow through it. Air is constantly being pushed through the evaporator and when heat is required, the blend door moves and directs air over the heater core after it has flown through the evaporator. You can try and have what we refer to as an evaporator service which washes the evaporator clean with a foam, or you can have the evaporator removed and cleaned manually.
Sorry, I missed that. Ok. What information do you need on my end. How to pull he dash and evaporator case to replace the fresh air/recirculation door.
Ok. See below.
When you pull the dash and evaporator case to replace the air inlet assembly, you can inspect the evaporator core since you will have the case out of the vehicle and the Freon out of the system.
What more do you need.
I am only on line in the evenings after I get off of work from my dealership. That is after 6:30 PM EST.
If it makes you feel better, I can reopen your question to the other experts. I am only on here part time along with a lot of the other experts. Most of us have full time jobs during the day.
Pulling the dash and removing the evaporator case requires an AC recovery machine to recover the Freon from the system. It cannot be vented to the atmosphere by law.
You can take it there and have them inspect it also.
No problem. I completely understand. I do not know personally your automotive knowledge or hands on experience. That is why I ask questions and talk back and forth to find out that information.
Look this over below.
Can you post a picture of this piece you are describing?
That plastic shield is held in with plastic push pins. We do not have a part number for that. You will need to find a generic set of push pins and find a few that fit tightly into the openings.
Correct. Just make sure the push pins are tight in the openings, really tight.
The way you have them is fine. They just need to be held into place.
