1999 Ford Escort Two Wheel Drive Automatic

I recently had my radio upgraded to a aftermarket one. the radio works great and i'm getting better sound off the factory speakers then I did with the orginal radio. problem is now I'm having trobble with the climate controls. I do got a friend helping me who knows more about installing car radios then I do. he's determined it's a vacum line that's not installed properly, but says he hasn't had to install one on a ford and he thinks there might be a part missing. I found a picture of the mouting kit I used and added about excatly what problems I'm having with what parts. so what I need at minium is information or some good pictures on how to install the vacum line back into the controls, and what pices should be there.
and if you could offer any tips on getting the thermostat dial reconnected that would also be a plus.
I'd be willing to donate more if I get a really good detailed response.

Okay, here we go. First, chances are your friend it correct and there is a vacuum problem. You requested vacuum schematics for the system so I found them for you. Now my concern. Will you be able to enlarge them to read them. If you can't, let me know and I will try sending them to an email so you can copy and paste them to enlarge. Also, the schematics show the entire HVAC vacuum system. I also attached a copy of the temperature control cable and how it is attached to the rear of the unit. I hope this helps, but if it doesn't let me know and I'll try to figure a way to get everything to you. NOTE: The first picture is basically showing vacuum line tracer colors and which should have vacuum and which shouldn't based on selector position. I added it hoping it will help. Don't let it confuse you.

First, thanks for the positive votes. It's appreciated. What I need you to do is send me an email address that I can send the picture to. Once you get it that way, I believe you can save it to your pictures then open it in windows photo gallery. Pick it and then select "Fix" at the top of the screne. I believe you can enlarge it from there. Are you able to save it to windows photo gallery from my original post? If you point at the picture and right click, there should be an option "save picture as".

LEt me know. IF that doesn't work, send me your email and I'll send it to that.

Okay I got the info to my friend who's helping me with the repairs. And we found that the vacum lines where not put back in properly, and he's pretty sure that's the cause of the vents not working right. But he also thinks I'm missing part of the connector, and it got lost some how when the profesional I had remove the orginal stero. So I was wondering if someone could please get me a photo of how the connector is suspoed to look so we can be certian and so in the event I am figure out what part I need to get.
