Re: no airl flow through dash vents

I don't know what that goes to either, but I thought the dampers were vacuum controlled. Does air flow freely in all the other positions?

not through the dash vents. air flows through the defrost vents and the rear vents. it was fine before, but then i saw that hanging under the glovebox i was thinking it got knocked off or something because of an 8 hour trip we took.

Hard to tell from pictures but not possibly the heater blower resistor ? Something like this ?

It has to be a vacuum problem and can't see the item in the picture well enough to know what it is. In most cases, the vacuum leak is under the hood with all the heat and flexing.
