I have an 08 Mountaineer that is starting to blow warm air from the drivers side vents. I added some freon and now it's blowing cold from both passenger and drivers side. So I have a leak somewhere.

Are there any common leak locations on the 08 models? I know the older Explorers had issues with leaking accumulators. Just trying to look around to see if I can find the leak before bringing the truck in.

Thanks in advance.

Stand on it!
If it has rear air, the lines running along the frame to the rear leak. The ones I've seen leaking are usually towards the front. I've seen the bolts that hold the running board on the passenger side rub through the steel line

It does have rear air. I'll take a look.

Thanks again!
