    Climate control, vents blow hot air

    I recently purchased a 1996 Explorer Limited, V8, AWD with just 75,000 on it. The problem (well, one of them) I'm having is that when you either run just the vent, or when the temp setting is met with the A/C on, the vent blows hot air. Could it be just the door actuator, or should I be looking...

    Weird defrost a/c problem.

    Hey everyone, so a few days ago I turned my max a/c on and I noticed that the blower was running but my ac wasn’t coming out of the dash vents.

    A/C & Vent Issues

    Hi, I purchased a 1996 Eddie Bauer (5.0) and the air conditioner isn't cooling and when in "vent" mode it blows warm air. Could these issues be related? Should I start with the thermostat before having the A?C looked at? Thanks in advance for your responses.:us:

    Potential actuator problem...?

    Hi All, I was driving dow the interstate recently and heard a loud "snap" noise in the area of my radio (center of the car in the dash) and now the air only comes out the defrost vents no matter what the setting (I get some light trickle through the vents that blow on passengers).
