My wife's Jaguar XJ8 Vanden Plas blower motor sounds perfectly fine with plenty of force (cfm's) from sound but the dash vents produce little air discharge. I am assuming that when we purchased the car there might be an issue we were not aware of, like possibly a dirty or clogged EVAP coil or blockage in the ducts. Do you have a diagram of the air handler duct assembly for this year? If so, then I can further diagnose the issues. Air temperature differentials are fine in readings but what should my suction line pressure be? Note: I have all the AC equipment, gauges, vacuum pump recovery unit, etc.
Do you
have the same problem?

Thanks Joe, It was actually a missing relay under the fuse/relay panel rear passenger side. I noticed it missing during a random testing of all fused circuits. Installed a spare of equivalent that I retrieved from (jaguar xj8) the salvage yards. It's operating 100%.

Welcome back:

That's what I like to hear. It's fixed. LOL I'm glad it was a relay (not sure why it was taken out). I never would have thought to tell you to check if it was there, assuming it was. Regardless, I'm glad it's fixed. I was worried about taking everything else apart. You would have been calling me all kinds of names because it isn't an easy job.

Take care of yourself and let us know if you have questions in the future.
