After getting my car back from the smash repairs, it seems the aircon is stuck to blowing onto the windscreen, even if the dial is turned to another position. The A/C itself works fine, you just cant direct it to the vents, so I'm guessing it may be a vacuum hose that has come loose? Any ideas?
Anyway, can someone please give me idiot proof directions as to finding said vacuum hose and reattaching it? Thanks!
You will have 2 hoses coming through the firewall on the passenger side, one black, one green. Black one will probably be d/c. It needs to be on a vacuum source. I can't remember where the fitting is on the ef manifold. If it is hooked up then possibly the line on the vac resivoir is d/c. It may be possible if you've just had the car in the panel shop. If its d/c here it will hiss. Its also a prick to get to as its behind the guard on the driver side.
Cheers for that, but all the hoses and that look to be in order.
I couldn't find anything loose or off.
Could it be anything else?
Do you think it could just be the lever/switch for the air flow?
Maybe i'll just visit a wreckers for one.
If it stays on the screeen, it is usually an engine sensor open circuit. So find your engine sensor and see if it is still connected. I don't know where it is, as I am just reading this out of the w/shop manual.
