stange things that happened after my service

i had my tranny serviced and fuel system cleaned, but a few little things have happened.

first of all my high beams no longer work. and second, no matter what setting i have the air con direction flow on, it comes out of the front windscreen vents.

any ideas why these things dont work now or how to fix them? they arent essential systems but id like to have them functional.

Re: stange things that happened after my service

high beam sounds like a faulty relay
and the a/c plumbing has dislodged from the Vacuum tree
reach down along the firewall on the inlet side and you will see and hear a suucking coming from the vacuum tree, there is a GREEN pipe(about the thickness of whipper snipper chord) that lives in the dome rubber cup on the vacuum tree, push it back in and your A/c will work again :)

Re: stange things that happened after my service

The green vacuum hose belongs to the heater tap Racecraft, Derb is looking for a short black one to plug back in to the vacuum tree. Same place and everything. Three hoses exit the cabin through the firewall from behind the washer bottle, two black and one green.
