A/C stuck on windscreen?

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!

Re: A/C stuck on windscreen?

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.

Re: A/C stuck on windscreen?

I have the same problem on My EA MPFI.
Are these hoses in the same place?
Any help will be great. Cheers

Yes they are in the same place except you will have 2 black hoses. From memory the long black is vac source, short black goes to some rubber piping which goes to the sensor on the thermostat housing.

Re: A/C stuck on windscreen?

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.

Re: A/C stuck on windscreen?

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.


cheers.
