Re: Ford Ranger Weak Defrost
Salvage vehicle or not, I'd put my money on the blend door not functioning correctly. The vacuum may be fine, but dust and debris accumulates over time and the blend door itself is probably sticking not allowing full air flow to the desired area. Not an easy fix by any means, as you have to take half the dash apart. If you plan to attempt this yourself and save the $800 or so in labour costs (dealer estimate), spend $100 or so on a factory service manual, and it'll outline nearly all the particulars for you. It's a lot more detailed than say a repair manual from Chilton or Haynes. Keep us posted!
