MY 2011 FORD F150 LARIAT AC WAS BLOWING FINE THRU VENTS

Customer Question
MY 2011 FORD F150...

MY 2011 FORD F150 LARIAT AC WAS BLOWING FINE THRU VENTS YESTERDAY AND TODAY IT WILL ONLY BLOW OUT OF THE DEFROST OR FLOOR. NONE WILL COME THRU VENTS

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the Freon level?

NO WE HAVEN'T, THIS WILL KEEP THE BLEND DOOR FROM WORKING

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your F150 yourself? What have you tried so far?

IT JUST STARTED TODAY, SO WE HAVEN'T TRIED ANYTHING JUST YET

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

NO JUST WONDERING WHAT TO LOOK FOR AND IS THIS COMMON

ok this is caused by a bad mode door actuator, and is a common repair on these, are you planning on fixing this yourself?

What Customers are Saying:

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

MollyUSA

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey

I would (and have) recommend your site to others I was quite satisfied with the quality of the information received, the professional with whom I interacted, and the quick response time. Thanks, and be sure that I'll be back whenever I need a question answered in a hurry.

9 dollars, 2 hours of my time, and I drove away. Your diagnosis was right on the mark. Thank you so much.
