1997 R-reg Mondeo - air and ventilation blower
Any help or advice please ? ...cockpit air blower has suddenly gone mad - it blows ok but very loudly, several times noisier than normal. The air does not appear to be coming through the vents properly, hence all the windows steamed up in the recent wet weather. The settings dial has always only seemed to operate on 'full' (dial mark 4), but at least I have been able to de-mist the windows !
I know nothing about these things but I assume there are some flaps and/or hoses behind the dash console which direct the air correctly. Does anyone know if there is a serious problem here - or am I on the right track guessing that a flap is dislodged ?
Is this an expensive garage job, or could it be tackled by myself - my mechanical skills do not go much further than the ability to undo a few nuts and bolts and screws ...and Im not joking ! [ My Haynes manual only leaves me more bewildered - eg. under-exposed illustrations give no clue about the location of the bits and pieces behind the console, etc ]
Would appreciate any diagnosis - or advice re a simple cure...
