Hi Guys,

Ive had an issue for awhile where my climate control now only cools your feet?

A VERY small amount of air comes out of the correct ducts, but most of it hits your feet, no matter which mode its on.

Swapped over the solenoid box thinking that was it, but no, exact same issue.

Anyone got any light to shed on this?

The hoses still seem intact, & with the centre console out, I can see that its blowing from the ducts below those that route to the rear thru the centre console.


Please help?

are all the vac hoses connected to the valves?

Can you move the side valve (drivers side up under the dash) by hand - ie open and clise the vents.

Also I have printouts at home of all the VQ climate setup from the big book. I can bring them into work if that will help you.

do you mean at the solenoid end? the little rubber vaccum manifold??

Looks like all the hoses from the dash are into the back of the manifold, & then I made sure all the white plugs were snug into the manifold.

Im going to go look for this side valve now!

BBS!

The vacuum opens the valves to let the small gates open and close - directing air flow. Can you move them by hand - ie not jammed up some how.

OK the vac lines go to something..... what ever they plug into will drive the vents inside the heater box.
