Hello All: I have a 2010 Explorer XLT. Issue is with the AC coming from the dash vents. Air coming from passenger side is 10 degrees colder than driver side. This vehicle does NOT have dual zone climate. Hope someone can help me understand what i need to fix. Do not want to take to dealer; that will be too expensive.
Thanks

Same issue with my 2009. Passenger side colder than driver's side. Low on refrigerant. Slow leak through the high pressure side Schrader valve. Elected to evac the system - replace the valve and re-pressurize.

No, the standard manual climate control.

You problem could also be a weak compressor. You can test for this by hand spinning the compressor with the engine off. You should feel resistance and not be able to easily spin it. I had to replace mine this summer and it had the same symptoms as you have now.
