When I switch to defrost the air continues to blow out the air conditioner/heater vents not on the windshield, switching the controls (face, feet etc) does not change to direction of the air flow.
Do you
have the same problem?

So when you try to change the air flow position can you hear any noises in the dash like clicking etc?

That would be a issue with the mode door actuator.

That part does not fit my vehicle according to the fitment chart. Also another link you sent me how to change the actuator is a much smaller part.

Look under the dash in the middle for a cable going to a mode door. Then operate the mode door knob while watching it. It doesn't just a OT about the AC on that car on our repair information we use. But looks like it might be cable operated.

Yes and no, the mechanic couldnt find the actuator, however they did switch the heater manually so that at least I have defrost on the windows until they can find where the actuator actually is located.

Hey LJCALLES,

I found this location diagram for you maybe you can print it and give it to the garage so they can see where the actuator is.
